You can search for Clematis by height on the Taylors Clematis website

Early Bloomers?

Posted: 07/11/2014 at 15:47

We had a tiny bit of cool weather followed by much warmer weather than usual for the time of year. That is all that is needed to make spring flowering plants think they've gone through a winter. Other plants will just keep flowering until it is too cold for them. Plants that have their flowering time governed by amount of daylight aren't affected.

Do you grow Aconitum's?

Plant it, is it in a pot or is it bare root?

Maybe you could try taking cuttings as basal cuttings

Got squirted by a garden slug

I once made the mistake of picking up a large slug bare handed because I couldn't be bothered to get my gloves. Well the time it took to scrub all the yukky slime off, I could have gone and got my gloves about 5 times. I didn't realise the slimy stuff was so resistance to soap!
