Looks as if the couple of packets of seed have done you well. I've tried mixes of woodland, perennials and wildflowers from the likes of johstones etc.

It's been enough to get things started but on the whole I find that growing the actually plant/flower from seed that you want has been quicker, better and cheaper.....you can collect the seed as well

Not ever tried honeysuckle, I've had good success with clemantis dipped in a rooting powder.

If you''ve got the space and time maybe layering a honeysuckle branch into the ground? Not tried it myself

I got a few geums from a t&m offer a couple of years ago, they were tiny when I got them...........size of  a finger nail. It's been their first year in the garden, can't say that I was that impressed but will leave them be for now, it might be what others suggest that they get better in time?

The ones I planted in a sunny spot have given me a few flowers, the ones in a partial shade spot, no flowers but a lot of healthy growth

 

Cleome's how to look after them in winter?

I'll be growing them again next year as well

I've been cutting off the spent flowers just to see if they will grow some more

Cleome's how to look after them in winter?

Posted: 01/09/2013 at 20:16

Hello, I've grown Cleomes for the first year here, I'm growing them as annuals and not giving them any winter protection, I do think they would be difficult to overwinter. I don't think that they will cope with cold temps.

You can get some hardy fuscias that will survive the Winter, but it does depend on what type you've got. I've got a few that are hardy and will survive the Winter here but others have perished
