clematis in need of identification

Thank you, waterbutts.  That looks like it.  I shall now label it.  It is very pretty.

clematis in need of identification

Posted: 11/09/2013 at 12:54

Could someone enlighten me on the name of this clematis which was left in a corner of my potager in a small pot for me to find by one of the many visitors to my garden?  I did recognise it as a climber, put it in a big pot with a stake and put it under my Fuchsia magellanica to shade its roots, then forgot it was there and now its purple flowers with pale green middles are scrambling through the big fuchsia bush and I cannot tell my visitors its name because no one has owned up to leaving it for me.

Autumn colour

My baby acer which I grew from a two leaved seedling I "weeded" at the Bristol botanic garden below the very old ones there, is beginning to show its new colours for the autumn.  Watering the asters below it has made sure it did not get forgotten with the watering can this dry summer.

Afteryou put on the first one, click on the insert image icon again and go through the same process for as many pictures as you have, before you click Submit.  I do not think the birds will be short of food this winter.

Let's celebrate the warm colours of autumn.  I'll start - here are the browns and oranges under my Scots pine in my front garden.

Drunk wasps all over my fallen apples - advice needed!

Posted: 03/09/2013 at 13:30

My fallen apples have competition for the ferment from a flock of starlings.  They are quite incapable of flying away they get so drunk.  I expect they are partial to insects too  so i just leave it to the wildlife to tidy up for me!

What's the star in your garden right now

There are tons more.  Lots will go in the freezer and be given away.  Much already has been.  I put my good health down to the produce I grow and eat.  Just had too plums with my coffee!  Very sweet this year because of all the sun,  I am hoping if this good weather contiues my grapes will be too.  I have never seen so many.

The star in my garden is the harvest I picked this lot this evening.

While you are making up your mind as to what kind of garden you want why not clean it of all weeds, rake level and sow an annual wild flower meadow mix - enough seed to cover that size will not cost much.  Now is ideal and the bulbs can all join in the beautiful sight you will have in the spring.  We have lots of patches like that floering this year in Bristol which has won the Green Capital of Europe Award for 2015 and is wowing passes by already.  you will be bang in fashion and will not have broken the bank.
