Thanks guys, I had an early start the other morning and went out with a torch around 4am but couldn't see anything but will persevere! Have just put a few pellets down Verdun and thanks for clarifying that the name IS the variety! x

Clematis Pests??

Posted: 02/05/2015 at 18:11

Hi can anyone please help.

I have planted 3 clematis and have treated them with a liquid slug solution in the soil. Have sprayed the leaves with Ultima pest spray AND a homemade garlic & chilli spray which I believe is very good at protecting against slug/snail damage.

Unfortunately my poor clematis leaves are STILL being eaten!

At the moment they still look pretty healthy. I bought them from Tesco's and are called "The President", (I'm assuming that's the colour of flowers that will produce rather than the actual clematis variety).

Can anyone suggest what else could be eating my poor plants?....and any way to treat the blighters!!!

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks! x

Does anyone know the name of a beautiful plant that we bought from the garden centre who's leaves look like army camouflage uniform??

I've lost the card that came with the plant and want to look it up to see how I can take cuttings from it to reproduce it next year.

It's beautiful and has started flowering!....I remember the guy in the garden centre saying it was only an annual but would love to take some cuttings from it.

If you can help I'd really appreciate it! Many thanks! xx

Celosia - Fresh Look Orange

Posted: 06/08/2012 at 21:02

Can anyone tell me the preferred soil type for planting my Fresh look Orange Celosia? I planted 2 of them in normal multi purpose compost, 1 is doing ok, although not growing particularly fast. The other is dying, the upright branches have all dropped and the flower heads are wilting. Any ideas?? Had a look online and it said they may prefer slightly acidic soil so should I plant them in erinacous soil??
