clematis leaf problem

Posted: 24/06/2013 at 21:56

After i commented on this thread one of my clematis started to look damaged. Its cleamtis the president. It had a few buds its this year one opened but not long after went completely limp. the plant is only 1 year old. All the other buds have gone limp now and the plant had black markings on its leaves and just looks a bit sorry for itself, we had very strong wind and monsoon like rain, is it that or is it wilt.

My parents are giving me some seeds from there aquilegia plants however i cant sow them in situ now as where they will be planted currently has bedding in. Can i sow them in pots and plant out september or overwinter them in a coldframe as i want them to flower next year or will they require a cold treatment prior to germination.

Surfinia - cuttings or collect seeds?

The reasons theres no guides is they patiented and your not allowed to propagate them but the sufinia you buy is propagated by cuttings the seeds dont come true.

I grew from seed this year dwarf delphniums (magic fountain) and dwarf hollyhock (queeny) they seem to be doing well and was wondering will they flower this year and will they survive the winter as there is mixed reviews on if they will survive or not. Anyone had any experience of them they are both supposedly perienial and flower in first year.
