Black eyed susan/Dahlia seedling?

Posted: 21/03/2014 at 22:46

I thought I had sown black eyed susan pricked one out and potted on however it looks suspiciously like a dahlia which I sowed in the same propagator. Any help would be appreciated.

found some begonia tubers..

They not frost hardy so would imagine that would have killed them. Supose you could still try and plant them its worth a try.

What plants do you use to ensure clematis roots are in the shade?

Posted: 17/03/2014 at 22:40

The thing with clematis is you don't want to plant something that's going to compete too much with the clematis roots. So don't plant anything too close or deep rooted . Even though roses go lovely with clematis its important to have a reasonable planting distance. I have mini hebes infront of some of mine and that seems to work well. I also use annuals such as snap dragon or bedding dahlia, carnations but again keep them a reasonable planting distance in front.
