Any chance of a pic Lyds? There are different types of clematis, which can be pruned at different times of the year............Has it flowered this year?

I was thinking about snowman.........so thanks. I think the blue ones are a lot more resiliant, didn't grow them this year but had a few that have popped up unexpectactly

I'd go for a canterbury bell, cups and saucer type, I have a blue one here....but it never grows upright...........just lies flat on the ground. Great surprise tried growing them from seed but no luck

I road them, chuck over the fence............can;t do the scissors or stamping on them. Snails are easier to handle,  so I just throw them next door..........yes they probably will come back, but it's going to be a long journey for them

Advice on climbers

I inherited a clematis montana when I moved here, very fast growing gives lovely flowers in the late Spring/early Summer. I really like the foilage, a bronze type of purple/green, it needs very little looking after but it will go to stick in the Winter. Once established this will really grow and will cover everthing

I'm sure others will come up with some more suggestions, there is a lovely evergreen jasmine but I don't know the name.

What are these

If it were me I would let the seeds develop on the stems and depending on your style you could just wave the stem about where you would like them to grow or use a paper bag and put the stem upside down and collect them that way.

I do think it's possible to cut the stems off and then collect the seed, but I'm short on space and you have to keep them in damp free conditions
