Talkback: How to prune roses

Posted: 25/10/2012 at 19:34
I suggest looking where you bought the roses from,,make sure the pots are big enough, ensure that the drainage is good eg polystyrene or broken pots place over hole in bottom of pot,if you have garden soil, mix in some grit,home made compost and feed mix well.

depends on when your Clematis flowers,try to move it when it becomes dorment, make sure the hole is deep ,water well, with fertilizer added as a good start,to a new life,
before you dig up the Clematis water it well some time before.
Things to remember with a Clematis is---- plant deeper than usual--- in case of Clematis wilt.-- keep roots in shade or protect with stones,or other plants, when you do move it take as much soil with it as possible.

make sure you prune at the right time, or you can lose the flowers.

Astrantias not flowering

Posted: 29/07/2012 at 00:06
I have only one Astrantia,which normally flowers most of the summer no trouble at all,this year not so,foliage is badly marked and flowers not much colour,for a better description, it looks sick, think will cut it back and give a feed.
