Rose Suckers Taking Over

Posted: 25/01/2014 at 20:42

Remove the soil around the suckers and pull up the suckers but do not cut, you need to twice the break the sucker from the root

The roots on your roses may be damaged which is the cause of your suckers.

herbaceous plants

I am now planning my next project, which I need about 40 herbaceous plants, but I want mature plants and the last ones I got from parkers were very small and crap.

Can  anyone tell me where is the best place I can get them from online.

Put it in a larger pot and put and good layer of grit in the bottom and add some to the compost.

 

clematis

This may help

Clematis is a beautifully varied flowering plant, available in a multitude of colours and flower sizes, however all Clematis fall into one of 3 distinct pruning groups: No Prune (Group 1), Light Prune (Group 2), and Hard Prune (Group 3).

Group 1: Early Flowering. Typically blooming in winter and spring, these varieties flower on the previous year's growth only, so if you need to remove damaged stems or control the size of the plant, the best time would be as soon as they have finished flowering. Included in this group are Alpina, Macropetala, Montana, and Evergreen varieties.

Group 2: Large Flowers. Typically larger flowers grow out on new shoots from last year's growth in late spring and summer. Some of these will occasionally display a second bloom at the tips of the current year's growth in late summer and autumn. These varieties should be pruned in spring, right back to where there are strong and healthy buds, before they start their active growth period. New flowering stems will be produced from this architecture of previous growth.

Group 3: Late Flowering. Group 3 Clematis only flower on current year's growth. These blooms tend to display from summer through to late autumn. These varieties are arguably the easiest to prune, as you basically cut it right down to about 20cm (8ins) above ground level in spring before they begin their active growth period, removing all of the previous year's growth.
