Best support for growing clematis to cover wooden fence

Posted: Yesterday at 11:39

I have quite a few clematis and a couple of honeysuckles all on wooden fences. I have found that the expanding wooden trellis you can get from places like B&Q works really well when screwed to the fence, the plants can then do as they will with a bit of guidance from you. 

 

Rhododendron losing leaves

Posted: Yesterday at 11:34

I have a Nancy Evans rhododendron in a large pot. This month the plant has started dropping leaves from the lower parts of its branches, the terminal leaves and flower buds look perfectly healthy. The affected leaves turn solid bright yellow and eventually drop. I have tried Epsom salts, seaweed tonic and the plant is looked after in relation to feeding and watering.

Has anyone any advice please?

Clematis problems

Posted: 29/07/2013 at 12:14

I have a clematis macropetala which is about six years old which looks as though it is suddenly dying in as much as all the leavego have gone brown. I can see no sign of disease and all the plants around it are flourishing. It is planted against an east facing fencI with shaded roots which are also covered in a layer of gravel

Does anyone have any ideas or advice ?
