I have 2 hanging baskets 1 foot in diameter and i want to fill one with trailing lobelia. How many plants should I put in to fill the basket and then trail over the edge? In the other i will put surfina in how many will i need for that basket?

I also have 2 15 inch potts and in one I am going to put a oblisk in and grow nasturtums up the oblisk, how many will i need to fill the pot up for a good display? I am going to plant morning glories with an oblisk in the other pot, how many of those will I need to grow to get a good extremely bushy display.

Thanks for any advice

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.

Clematis Should I get 1 or 2

I found my clematis did really grow much in the first year i planted them but i am waiting and hoping they do well this year.
