Clematis for Breakfast

Posted: 11/05/2012 at 18:35

Thanks for all the advise.  I'll try tips re the ear wigs this weekend and will do a bit of research on vine weevil.  Strangely enough, since I started this thread doesn't appear to have been any more damage - perhaps the wee beasties know I'm on to them....

Lets do the Timewarp again

Having gone through a similar process, which is still work in progress, I would suggest checking if anyone you know wants the plants you don't rather than just dumping them.  I couldn't believe how much some of the stuff we were treating as weeds costs at garden centres!  

If you make friends with your new 'green fingered' neighbours they might return the favour by sharing plants of theirs that you do like.  Might also be a good opportunity to see what they have done in their gardens to give you some ideas.

Help, something has been nibbling the tasty new shoots on one of my clematis.  I can see no evidence of who the culprit may be but have tried slug pellets just in case, without success.

Any ideas?  I have two clematis fairly close together however it is only one that is affected.  The same thing happened last year so I've yet to see it flower.

Seeds as wedding favours

I saw some in an M&S Outlet store just the other day, already packaged.  Think they were around £2.99 each which could work out quite expensive though depending on how many guests but would save alot of work.  Unfortunately I have no idea what type of seeds were in the pretty little packages!! (obviously didn't have my 'gardening' head on that day, rather my 'friend of soon to be bride' head).
