Clematis dropping petals

Posted: 18/05/2017 at 20:20

Clematis Blue Light ought to give you blooms for a couple of months May/June and some more later around September ... has it had plenty of water?  They are thirsty plants, especially when they're producing flower buds and we have had a very dry spring.  Also a dose of specialist Clematis Food each spring is advisable.

Topbird ... I've already decided that next year most of the Rozanne is going into the front border rather than the sunny bed in the back garden ... its leaves are the wrong sort of green to go with the rest of that bed ... it'd be good to see a photo of yours when the three are out together?

What sort of clematis is it?


Different varieties of clematis bloom at different times of the year ... some bloom in the spring and then have a second flush in late summer.  Very few have a long flowering period.

Topbird   the rain and warm temperatures have been lovely haven't they?  I weeded some Swiss chard seedlings the other day and it's been almost possible to see them growing over the past couple of days.thin


Orange and blue ... I was thinking of some Calendula Indian Prince among some Ger. Rozanne ... what do you think?

I think something's been lost in translation ... from Alvina's earlier posts I gather she comes from China or Malaysia or thereabouts.

I would go to Orange Pippin fruit trees for the crab apple https://www.orangepippintrees.co.uk/ 


and their associate company Pippin trees for the rowan https://www.pippintrees.co.uk/search.aspx


They have an excellent reputation.

I remember Matty talking about it BL ... it was what made me suggest it to my young friend when she said she wanted to buy me 'a purple flower' 


Glad you had a lovely day meeting Jean
