Aloe vera plants

Posted: 09/06/2014 at 23:04

I think aloe plants are succulents. I always follow Dr Hessayon advice on repotting these. They don't like water when they aren't growing, all their water is in their leaves so they are very prone to rotting off.

He says that when you are repotting, don't repot a succulent straight away, allow it to dry out a bit, the bigger the plant the longer you leave it.

If it looks healthy I'd keep an eye on it, if it looks like it's going to die, I'd lift it for a while and the replant it

 

 

Growing Roses

Not a rose grower, I do love them though. In my grandads garden there are still roses in bloom from his parents garden, probably over 70 yrs old now

Clematis Montana grow really quick if they are happy

Blue Geraniums - no flowers

Posted: 09/06/2014 at 22:27

As long as the plant looks healthy, they will flower. I got some blue geraniums off a friend and they've only just come into flower in the last few days. I think plants do their own thing

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?
