Is it true you can harden off a plant just by keeping it extremely dry. I read it somewhere but have never tried it.

Clematis Should I get 1 or 2

Posted: 18/03/2013 at 12:00

I have a clematis the president and the flowers are large and a really good purple colour. I have also got a clematis rebecca flowers not as large as the president but is the closest to red I have seen a clematis sort of a maroon colour. I would definately recomend those two. Always wanted a clematis nelly moser i have seen a few about and they have large flowers and a good pattern although not grown one yet. If your wanting total coverage and screeing get a clematis montana they get really big i have a few in my garden, rubens is a large variety flowers pink i also have a clematis montana marjorie which is a smaller variety for a montana and has redish flower but montanas do flower in spring.
