The best multi purpose compost this year

I bought the 120 litre verve b&q compost this year and it was good stuff night and day better than last years compost.

What plants do you use to ensure clematis roots are in the shade?

Posted: 17/03/2014 at 22:40

The thing with clematis is you don't want to plant something that's going to compete too much with the clematis roots. So don't plant anything too close or deep rooted . Even though roses go lovely with clematis its important to have a reasonable planting distance. I have mini hebes infront of some of mine and that seems to work well. I also use annuals such as snap dragon or bedding dahlia, carnations but again keep them a reasonable planting distance in front.

Make sure you soak old pots and propagators for a while in water and bleach.
