I have dug 4 evergreen ceanothus up from my front garden. I Removed the main root ball which was a difficult job but there was still deep long roots that i couldnt fully remove. My question is will it come back. I am turfing over the top of this and to be quite honest it would be impossible from me to get much more of the root out. The reason i dug them out is that i live in a newbuild house and they planted by the builders but they were overgrown with weeds that i could not fully remove and they looked tatty.
ill cut it back to ground tommorrow as much as it pains me to do it and ive read to water the ground with a copper based fungicide. Any recomendations on what to get
It was doing so well im dissapointed but i cant see any snail damage at all and i have had a really good look. Its in the soil at the moment i planted it deep in the ground so hopfully will recover.
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.
