If they've got legs they're not vine weevil grubs.

Pesky squirrels

Posted: 04/04/2016 at 15:51

Cayenne won't harm the plants, but it may harm the squirrels - if they get it on their paws and then rub their eyes (as squirrels and cats do) the cayenne will burn and ulcerate their eyeballs, causing excruciating pain and blinding them.  I'm sure you don't want that to happen.

This was spoken about on Gardeners Question Time just the other week.

Clematis advise

Posted: 04/04/2016 at 14:12

If it's in a pot that might be why it's struggling - they really like to get their roots down into cool damp soil.  How big is the pot?

Just for now, give it some specialist clematis feed. 

Winter is finally over here :)

Now that makes me feel warmer - there's nothing like a blazing fire and a stack of firewood to make you feel snug and cosy.

What's going in the pots?

 

Clematis advise

You've definitely got some flower buds there

What variety is it?

Do you feed it with specialist clematis fertiliser?

Inconsistency with Nasturtium seed germination.

I find that nasturtiums germinate perfectly easy sown where they are to grow.  I never try to start them indoors.  I sow in the ground outside mid to late April. 

Hope that helps - good luck

Any ideas what this plant/shrub could be?

One of the hardy geraniums - there are lots  - it will flower in the summer and then you and we might be able to identify which one

Most of them are pretty good ground cover plants so they're usually worth keeping.
