Sweet pea heads dropping off

Posted: 07/06/2014 at 14:09

Don't know what to suggest 

It's not something I've encountered before. Have you grown them successfully in the same places before? I wonder if there's not enough nutrition for them.

Can I grow a Clematis alongside a Virginia Creeper?

I'd keep the VC for the wall and have the Clematis elsewhere. The autumn colour on a wall is beautiful.

Are they in the ground or in pots? I only ask because in pots they might be congested if you have a lot of them, and therefore they could be  short of food and water, and in the ground it could be slug/snail damage. Regular picking usually means more flowers, not less. 

DavidK is the SP expert but I don't know if he's around today.

Didn't realise you were a Scot Lavande 

LH - I used to travel a lot to various shows all round the country. Our Scottish accents were often taken for Irish...not really sure why!

That's a great bargain Tray. They didn't have any clematis that I wanted last time I was there. EV's a lovely clematis and flowers like mad.

Percy, I think you can divide those if they're too big, as long as you get a decent root on the clump.  Verdun will know the best time to do it. They do get quite big. 

Yet another ID required please?!

Hi janet. I lowered the cut last week to do the rough bit at the side of my house and forgot to alter it when I went through the gate to the front so a few sq metres were scalped. I've just cut the grass again and its all fine after the rain we've had this week. Mine was fed a while ago so it's in quite good heart. Grass recovers - if it still looks a bit lousy in a couple of weeks, a bit of grass seed will help but other than that - it's just time.
