Clematis

Posted: 28/07/2013 at 09:19

I have a clematis which is in flower now large purple flowers,  it must be 6-7 years old.  My problem is 

1.  It always gets covered in black fly

2.  The leaves have started going brown and crispy from the bottom up.

Please can anyone put me right, what am I doing wrong?

Can anyone tell me if it is too late to move a hosta, after redesigning our garden last year have now found two hostas too close to each other.

My primula a are coming to an end can I keep them for another year.  If so what do I do with them?  I also have some violas can I keep those.  I know this seems petty but I don't want to throw plants away unnecessarily

I need an evergreen bush to go in a extra large pot.  One that has some interest

 

Phacelia

I have been given some Phacelia seeds, I don't know what type of Phacelia, but apparently they are helpful to bees.  What I need to know is how high do they grow and do they spread.  Can anyone help?  I think it is time to sow them now.

Is it too late?

30 years ago we moved into our house, the garden sorted by previous owners, looked good. However, two boys, one dog and working we did not have time or money to keep it going. We kept it tidy and I grew certain things by seed, but that was it. Originally the site was a pig farm and very sticky (clay) also when digging have found bricks, rubble you name it, it must have been the site tip. We have now retired and would like to improve the earth so we can grow without mildew, caused by water laying I guess. We live in Kent, so normal years we have warm summers Generally with a hosepipe ban. Can anyone help with the earth situation or any thing else. Sorry about the life history, thought I would put you in the picture.
