Clematis Coming of Age

Posted: 19/11/2015 at 06:04

It is a C. integrifolia from Thompson & Morgan. I moved it a couple of times

to find out where it best suited it. Recently I added a mulch of shredded cardboard,

and it seems to please the little beast!

Clematis Coming of Age

Posted: 18/11/2015 at 20:16

I started this from seed years ago, and after a long battle with my nemesis

(mites), here is the first (although a bit tatty) jewel:

Gertie, it is in fact a mum, but I believe rather a cross between a mophead and a spider, because of the outer petals (a deduction rather prone to criticism!).

Loved the clematis, busy-lizzie!

oxalis

Posted: 08/11/2015 at 17:05

Oxalis has always been the worst (green) enemy in my Brazilian garden. Until

some years ago they were simply everywhere, half a dozen types of it growing

among  herbs, vegetables, flowers, grass and pavement. What I have now is fruit of

at least 10 years of painful eradication by hand (and knife) and disposal of bulbils

and roots and flowers. The bulbils and roots are specially difficult to whack because

they break up easily from the main plant. It helps to dig the plot and bring some of

the lower soil up so next "oxalicide" session is made easier with the bulbils and

roots closer at hand. Do not compost oxalis, dispose of it in the garbage or burn it.

Gaillardia

Sow early indoors, gaillardias are slow at first but take off in four months, more or less.

Delphinium flowering late again!

It is funny, the dropping petals look like an aconitum's!
