But only if it doesn't wet the goshawk

Clematis

Posted: 17/07/2014 at 10:11
The best clematis in my garden started as plugs - they seem to establish so much better than the bigger plants from a GC. So next year you should be pleased with them, and the following year you will hopefully be amazed

The larger ones might have flowers already, but they will have been hurried along in conditions which are nothing like your garden. Plugs get to grow into their surroundings.

Morning all  Hadn't realised a scorcher was on the cards - best go do a bit of watering before i head off to catch my train.

Tooth is sorted - thanks KEF - old filling removed and new one put in - hope it does the trick

I think so Lili - its certainly what I am doing.  Everyone says they must be deadheaded to keep them flowering.  My way is just "live-heading"

Love the bright colours Victoria - not clashing, just eye catching

No terracing David, but the rain soaks in rather than runs off.  The stone retaining wall is a sort of terrace I suppose.

lovely pics Yvie - i love phlox, and they do well for me here, so look forward to them coming out .... Half mine are flowering, the others are just on the brink
