Thanks fro asking - much more like me today - have done quite a bit in garden. Then stopped as don't want to aggravate the good that is happening. Don't want to be like that again 

Wrist and bruises improving??

Much better now thanks - a bit achey sometimes and knuckles still sore, but almost back to normal really.  OH takes good care of me   Apparently he's taking me out to lunch tomorrow 

Take care of yourself - concussion can be nasty for quite a while.

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.

There are several different varieties, Dawn and Deben are two popular ones.  I have V. bodnatense 'Charles Lamont'

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.
