Awww - I like their simplicity

plugs turn white and kill my cuttings.

What sort of plugs?

When did you get them, what are they planted in and where are they?

What are the cuttings and when did you take them?

Clematis wrapped round tree

Mmmm   I'm not a magnolia grower so I'm not sure how happy your magnolia will be with a lodger - I would only grow a big clematis up a tree that was past it's best but where it's presence was still needed to contribute height or provide screening.

I suppose you could use one of the smaller types that need cutting hard pack every year - a viticella might work perhaps?

Hi aym and welcome to the forum 

Keep the dahlias in a sheltered spot away from any frost and we'll keep our fingers crossed for you. 

If you have more questions do come here and ask - someone will know how to help you - googling can be a bit risky

 

 

Pruning Pauls Scarlett climbing rose

Posted: 12/02/2016 at 06:05

I agree with Marlorena - prune late autumn in the way described and give a feed in March.

If you get confused by main growth and side shoots the information and video here explain it clearly http://paulzimmermanroses.com/care/pruning/pruning-climbing-roses/
