Help for a novice

Hi Derek - welcome to the forum - we're friendly here 

For the Clematis I'd use Fish, Blood & Bone or similar in early spring - Feb here in the UK. 

Bulbs and corms contain all the nutrition they need in order to flower so they don't need feeding now.  However, after they've flowered it's a good idea to apply a similar fertilizer to encourage the growth of plenty of foliage which will then feed the bulbs for the following season.

It looks like the beautifully scented Viburnum Bodnantense - there are several varieties.  They usually flower in midwinter when the leaves have fallen, but this is an odd year and mine has been flowering on and off since August

The Under Gardener has been lovely this afternoon - apparently I'm not yet fit to plant shrubs and bulbs, so under supervision he has planted a buddliea, some perennials and some bulbs for me.

Now I'm roasting a chicken and chunks of squash to have with roast potatoes and runner beans for our supper.

I think the error message you're getting may be because the picture is too big, or because the site is too busy.

Are you clicking on the green tree icon to upload?
