pergola - wisteria or clematis?

Posted: 09/03/2014 at 23:26

I have a thornless rose - Mortimer Sackler ( terrible name, lovely rose) and a clematis - The President on my arch. The rose is no bother I just tie it in and prune lightly in early spring - no thorns. there are quite a few available. The clematis also gets cut down in early spring and is covered with blooms all summer.

Thanks. I would have missed it too. Had to reach for the subtitiles button when the sound disappeared half way through - very annoying! Great to have Monty and Nigel back.

Thanks Forester. If you click on my picture to enlarge and then zoom in, you can see all the clumps of frogspawn - about 30 so far!
