Dividing Clematis

Posted: 12/01/2016 at 06:04

I'd be careful - damage low down on the plant is how Clematis Wilt infection strikes.

I'd rather take cuttings/layers.

Which subjects............

Might go for a short stomp to see some snowdrops this year if it warms / dries up a bit Dove

That would be a lovely idea.       Drying up would be good.

Removing leylandi

Posted: 12/01/2016 at 05:43

Leylandii won't regrow from the stumps even if you don't grind them out - they'll just rot down eventually, so although leaving the stumps isn't ideal it's not a disaster either.

However, if you want to grow something else there it's good to get rid of them.

Good luck

It's years since I made wine, but I remember someone telling me that if a wine was too sweet he went for a secondary fermentation - not sure how he did that but the information must be out there somewhere .........
