Plant ID - post questions for GW Magazine

Posted: 12/08/2014 at 10:36

I don't know if it's any help or not, but this is my HF Young, flowering in May of this year.  It hasn't any flowers at the moment.  Planted 2 years ago.

And this is Will Goodwin, flowering now (planted this spring)

 Not a brilliant photo but it's very windy out there at the moment. 

I would have said that Will Goodwin is a paler blue than HF Young - both flowers are about the same size.  

But looking at your photos, I think the petals on your clematis are rounder at the tips than either of mine.

If it was easier to cut 7 inches from the bottom of the rootball than to dig a further 7 inches of the planting hole, I suspect the site may not be suitable

Rhododendron problem

Posted: 12/08/2014 at 09:08

Well, the grubs turn into the adults - we noticed adult vine weevils feeding on primula and honeysuckle leaves - treated the bed and Hey presto! - no problem 

But it would be good to see a photo of the damage - it might be leaf cutter bees - they like rhodos. 


Whats happening?

But if Cornwall wasn't busy there wouldn't be jobs for the youngsters and they'd move away - it happened before ....

Rhododendron problem

Posted: 12/08/2014 at 07:36

We had problems with vine weevil when we moved into this garden 3 years ago - we gave the bed 2 treatments with Nemasys vine weevil killer and have had very little problem since.

 I think the hedgehogs help get them too.

Good luck
