Clematis & Sollya heterophylla

Posted: 11/06/2014 at 15:29

I think they'd both need their own space - clematis are hungry  feeders and also need plenty of water if they're in a container. 

I've not grown it myself but from what I read Sollya heterophylla is also a hungry feeder  - I think it would have to be a very large container indeed that could provide both with what they need. 

I can see the attraction of planting them close by - they will look very pretty together. 

A couple of rose questions

Aha, but the advantage of being a gardener is that if you keep ignoring a rose it'll reach out and grab you as you walk past

I've done one lawn - glass of cold water then the other one to do.

Is anyone else finding that sometimes photos won't enlarge when you click on them?

I clicked on one this morning and it enlarged and then 5 mins later it wouldn't enlarge.

Daniel is getting the techies to look at it, but has asked if anyone else is having the same problem.

Re the orchid - just leave it as it is - do not use any fertiliser or sprays around it - 

 

Report it to your local Wildlife Trust http://www.wildlifetrusts.org/  they keep records of such things
