Plant ID - post questions for GW Magazine

Thanks Dovefromabove. I agree that the petals do seem rounder. On my earlier thread it was suggested it could be 'Justa' but again the petals look too pointy. Justa however is a viticella - they usually have smaller flowers....

when you google these clematis you get so many different photos you don't know what to believe

HF Young was one of the  varieties suggested by a forum member on my earlier thread but dismissd by another due to flowering times. Having looked at the pictures (they vary very widely) and read  how free flowering and compact it is I do believe this is my clematis. Sounds as though I couldn't have picked a better one!

The link below describes it well and the pictures match too.

Many thanks

Hi Emma, all the flowers measure between 5-6cm in diameter. Could it be they are small flowers because it is a young plant?

 The flowers do fade to what looks like a blue when they  age.

I thought that the variety would be a common/popular one that is easily propagated like Hagley Hybrid for me to be able to pick up 2 clematis for £7.  Thanks.

Hi, bought 2 clematis from Lidl  just labelled 'summer flowering'. The forum identified one as Hagley Hybrid but we couldn't id the other. It is not large flowered - flowers are approx 5cm across and it has been flowering since July.  I would be grateful if you could id it for me. Thanks

Diseased Elder Tree?? Can someone help?

Posted: 11/08/2014 at 10:39

Could we have a close up of some of the leaves? Any problems with the neighbours? Scratch back the bark  one of the naked branches with a finger nail to see if the branch is still alive.

Deadhead! Take off all the spent flowerheads and seedheads and then feed with a tomato feed.

Plants grow to reproduce - make seed. When they make seed they then have no reason to make more flowers. By removing dead flower heads and seed pods, this will stimulate the plants into making new flowers....deadhead regularly to keep the flowers coming and  the plants tidy.
