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.
Thanks thats great ill do that and see how they do. I am going to plant them in dappled shade too.
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.
Thanks for any replys
Could be clematis wilt
Unfortunately mine are in the ground so cant pot them on or overwinter them. Do you think they will survive?
Thanks for the replys
I dont have any seeds but my local nursery was selling them for 70p a plant so I got a mrs bradshaw and a Lady stratheden. Funny it was gardeners world that made me purchase them too.
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.
Well i have been feeding them and lots of tlc so hopefully i may see some blooms in august from the january sown ones,
They look good I have been growing them since january they are both about a foot high and a foot wide so i am hoping they bloom. How high was the follage when they bloom as i am unsure how big they will get.
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.
