Clematis id needed

Thanks Rosemary, I agree with the Hagley Hybrid that looks spot on, thank you.  I'm not sure about the second one as the flowers are not as big but then it is a young plant....but as you say there are so many varieties now!

Thanks pansy face. The reason that I haven't gone to a web site is that there are just so many varieties to choose from. Quite often, on the forum, people that are up close and personal with popular plants can identify plants much more quickly and accurately - but thanks for the link 

Clematis id needed

Hi, I bought two clematis from Lidl for £7 a few weeks ago. One in a pink sleeve the other in a mauve one. They are both now flowering  and I wondered if anyone could id them for me. I'm thinking they should be  well known, easy to propagate  varieties....I'm really pleased with both. Hoping you can help!

Clematis problem with leaves

Hi Amabel, have you planted them  in the ground or in pots?

Pleased to have a new garden visitor.

Pansyface,sorry but I have to correct you -  it's the juvenilles that have the red cap and the male adults have red on the back of their necks.

Jack, it is a chick from this summer that is visiting you at the moment.

Identifying plants given as a gift years ago

A bit more detail...Cistus purpureus, Geranium molle or dove's foot cranesbill (wild flower), Vinca minor.

Ivy! Around my tree

Posted: 10/07/2014 at 23:17

Cut the ivy at the base. The ivy attached to the tree will then die and will be easier to remove. Any regrowth from the base can be treated with glysophate - avaiable from most stores.
