Clematis wrapped round tree

Posted: 11/02/2016 at 15:50

It's not uncommon for a Montana type clematis to be grown up into the canopy of an old tree, particularly an old fruit tree that doesn't  fruit well any more.  It can look wonderful and apart from a bit of a tidy up occasionally it shouldn't need much attention.

Lesley    the propagator arrived the other day ... I'm going to have to be careful not to start things too soon as I only have a small wooden mini-greenhouse to move things on to, so I think I'll wait until March to start things off. 

Reviving a failed compost heap

I wouldn't throw away what you've got, but as you add shredded paper etc stir it in to mix it well and get air into it - then see if you can get some used pet bedding from someone with pet rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens, goats or ponies etc.  Add some of that and stir it around - that'll put some life into it.

Anybody else got a funny looking forum or is it just me?
