I was going to put up a trellis to act as as a screen from next door,but with the problems cost and getting one made to fit I have decided to put up hedging,

has anyone got a cherry laurel in the garden and will it do the job of screening.



Wooden planter for clematis.

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.

Hi all.

I am after some advice about a couple of shrubs I need.

First these must be evergreen.

Grows up to 6 foot high and 3 foot deep

With flowers

To be used as a barrier

Soil will depend on what shrubs I get as I will be replacing the soil with the best soil I can get my hands on.

Part shade

May be asking for too much,but worth a try.

I would also love to her out if I knew where she lives,I live in sunderland and if tatiana lives nearer me I would also help out.

free plants off garden centres would be one of the first things I would do,but this would depend on the location.

You say it is a new build.

what I would do first before anything is done is check to make sure the garden does not have tons of rubble buried under the grass.

I moved into a new build two years and had to remove tons of rubble.

Clematis newbie question

Posted: 06/06/2013 at 21:27

looking at the size of your trellis I would buy two one for each side of the house but get the ones what only grow 2 metres high that way it will cover both sides of the trellis and not cover the full front of your house as some clematis will.This way a large pot either side of the trellis will do as long as you feed it.

best to get a evergreen and a group 1.
