Aphids ... wash them off with a squirt of water from the hose.  


They suck sap from the plant so weaken it a bit, but they won't do you any harm if you accidentally eat some.


No flowers on my clematis Montana

Oh dear ... you've been pruning off the growth that would produce the flowers in the following year.  


Prune (if needed) in early summer, straight after flowering .... and this year don't prune at all and give it a dose of Clematis food in Feb/March.  


Let us know what happens next year

It looks as if it gets pruned ... When does this happen?

What is this?

My best guess is that the parent plant was cross-pollinated with a wild cucumber which have hairy/spiny fruit .  It may well taste very bitter.  

Identification please

It's 22C and feels muggy here ... the back grass must be cut ... but first we must pop up to the farm shop to pick up some bottles of wine we ordered and paid for before I broke my foot ... 


Good to hear your eye's improving LilyP
