HELLO FORKERS!

I'm stumped 

But then I'm not the only one who's confused.

Remember the other day I said that my Viburnum Bodnantense 'Charles Lamont' is in full bloom RIGHT NOW!  

Well, the Clematis cirrhosa 'Freckles' which grows behind it, is blooming NOW as well  - do they think they're in the Antipodes?

That looks like it OL   That's about how mine are at the moment.

Hollows in fig tree branch stumps - a problem?

Which variety is it? Are you planting it in a greenhouse or outside - if it's outside it will fill with water and then you have the potential for rot - if it's inside you can probably keep water out of it .

If it was a real bargain and it's the best that they've got, and you don't mind that it's a lopsided plant and you're willing to take a risk then you can choose to go for it

Or would you rather spend a bit more on the right plant - only you can make that decision. 

As a comparison, last year I paid about £15  for a well-grown Brown Turkey fig tree - nearly 3ft tall and the same across with half a dozen good branches and already bearing some figs.

It also looks as if it ought to be scented at night and attractive to moths

Agapanthus

We wrap the pot of agapanthus in bubblewrap and put in in the most sheltered corner of the terrace with the lilies and fig and other precious plants.  They've survived so far - just about to burst into bloom again.for their third summer with us
