Is this a Clematis?

Sorry slow typist, short attention span and very poor internet

It's very pretty, I just liked looking at the buds...........  I'm so amazed at how the big the flowers are, I love it, they are so beautiful and so strong.  Trying to train it to grow over the shed.

I inherited this and according to them that planted it this is it's best year yet. When is the best time to do any pruning?

I've only had the Montana and the Jackamini types before

Thank you both

I wasn't sure when it was growing. I've only had the early flowering types before. The buds have been around for weeks and all of a sudden they turn in to this!

I think this is the first year that it is flowering. Very nice colour Flora

Hello everyone, this vine type plant has had some lovely buds on it for weeks, over the last couple of days it's starting to flower

It's been a lovely surprise, I love the colour and the flowers are huge and so strong. I didn't think it was a Clem at first but now I'm not sure?

Looks like it might have the beginnings of rust

Slugs.. sod the organic approach I just want them dead!

Occasionally I've used the blue pellets sparingly when a plant has been munched almost to death. Not the ideal solution but it has worked and allowed the plant to recover and survive

I had a lovely established  Montana in my last house and no harm was done by cutting it back hard after it flowered. I can't see your neighbour even noticing if you hacked it back a bit.

 

Bumble Bees

I hear lots of buzzing in the walls here, so wonder if they are the hairy footed bee, love the name, they do look similar

Snap dragons here Fishy are still really seedlings.......the bees do love them!

Perennial Planting

I've had a similar free offer before, the plantlets were tiny when I got them so I potted them on til they grew bigger. Think it's a good time to get them planted in the ground as long as they have a good healthy root system. They might not flower this year and just put on growth but they have their roots in the ground and will come back year after year.
