Clematis "Apple Blossom"

Posted: Today at 14:53

I had   a similar problem and it turned out to be ,and I know not why, lily beetles.I have now tried my own solution of garlic drink for my plants as well as spray and indeed my indoor plants are doing ok on it  as like most things they hate garlic and it also very good for the plant but not on seedlings .

A new small flowering plant ID, please.

I don't know but it looks very pretty.

New raised beds, clumpy soil, advice please?

Posted: Today at 14:48

we have new raised beds from clay soil which over 38 years endless amounts of compost has gone in it .We have had to add more again and make sure you dig it over not just once  every time the bed becomes empty.We also grow potatoes in them first to help break the soil down. Its never easy with clay soil but digging and putting compost in will help.

BEDDING PLANTS

They have to good drainage and you need to water in the cool of the day every day with a good can of water,they will need dead heading and feeding too once a week. and make sure the compost you put it in is not tired ,always use "fresh" compost .In intense heat they will wilt but will pick up in the cool of the day.
