Ok, thanks for the advice. I've got some cold frames they can go in.

PLANTING NOW

Posted: 20/10/2012 at 17:25

Hello- I've got several clemantis montana plants that were grown from cuttings earlier this year. They are in good size pots and live in a sheltered outside position. The roots have only started to pop through the bottom of the pot.

I was going to leave them in their pots and plant out next Spring? Any advice would be appreciated as I'm so pleased with them

I've been following the Nigel threads, I do genuinely have to ask what is the good news?

When to plant spring bulbs

Posted: 20/10/2012 at 16:14

I've been planting the small bulbs like crocus at the base of annual plants where I can. I know what you mean I have stuff to go out but still have a lot of plants on the go.

Thanks for the info Obelixx, I planted out loads last year and although I had a good show, it wasn't as good as it should have been. I think the wilko etc bulbs could with a good soaking before going in.

Autumn Colour

Stunning pictures of the acers Chris & David K. I've always admired them but never really thought about getting one myself. I noticed that you both have them in pots and they do grow to a fair size. Do you need to grow them that way? I've got a woodland area that I'm planting up, the lovely colour of them at this time year would really brighten that space up.

gary- I've always loved that plant and now I know the name- really beautiful.

I do forget sometimes how beautiful Autumn is, always thinking that Winter is on the way. Whilst I moan about the Winter,I do really love the changing of the seasons that we have.

I've still got a fair bit colour going on in the garden, sad as soon as the first frost come, they will be over.

What's for tea?

home made chilli- cooked last weekend, currently defrosting- no cooking for me tonight

need advice

I guess you could grow them from seeds, like other plants you need to let the seeds dry out properly before you sow them.

Have you thought about growing them from the corns instead. These plants really spread over a short space of time. How about dividing the plant?seperate it and then replant, you should have a good show next year

Do you have to have pick out points...

Hiya,

The garden has had a major over haul this year, and the first thing that changed was the path.

As you can see I go for the haphazard planting scheme, in time hopefully I'll a lot more plants that trail over the walls and I probably will plant into the edge of path it self to soften it up even more
