I agree the flowers look extremely similar however te follage doesnt appear to match however it could just be that mine are only in the first year of planting. Thanks for the replys

I am growing cestrum tomentosum and have been since september and out of everything i have grown its done the best they are quite big in the pots now. I generally prick my seedings when they develop there first set of true leaves (their second set of leaves) and put them in larger cell trays or small pots. Each plant is different as for instance my pansys are in my unheated greenhouse but i am growing my dahlias, marigolds, indoors still as they are not hardy. Someplants grow leggy in heat and other prefer cold so its really a plant by plant thing but theres plenty of information on the net. As for potting on again its a plant by plant thing but generally they will start to look big in the pot and then its time to pot on. I am sure someone will know alot more than me.

Clematus montana or triffid?
