That's It!! Great ! Thank you both very much. I just knew someone on here would be able to identify it correctly. I'm delighted that it's now got a name.

There's some great pics on this thread, so just wanted to add one taken last week.

 I inherited this clematis and I think it may be a cirrhosa type. I would love to know what name this one is as I cannot find pictures of one like it anywhere on the web. It has pale greenish petals with a slight blush of pink but no spots. Can anyone help please?

Mmm. Yes I think my neighbour would take it as a personal criticism, so I'll just keep treating and digging I think!

I had 20 years in an Xtra large bank as a trainer and cashier, but decided to get trained as a florist just before I took early retirement. I'd love to show that lot on the allotment prog how to arrange their flowers!

I've started getting a few shoots of this through from my neighbours garden, growing under their fence. I dig down as far as possible but the roots always seem to come from her side. Anything I can doo? I've bought some of that gel stuff to dab on the new growth. Will it work on that sort of elder?

That's what I was hoping Welshonion. Mine are on the windowsill indoors and hope to put them in the greenhouse after the cold snap, then out into prepared beds.

Is it too early to sow French beans in the garden as  the soil is much warmer this year than the same time last year. Having said that the forecast for the weekend is for colder nights here in Essex, so I'm unsure what to do.

I've started some runner seeds off on wet kitchen roll and now planted in pots in my cold greenhouse. Maybe I can do the same with the French ones. Hope someone can help.
