When I took my cuttings I just pulled up a few bits, a bit like yours. I'd plant them up as Lyn suggests. Hope they do well for you

Moving a Clematis

I'd be tempted to do it now, just thinking if you waited till after it flowered next year it would be even bigger. You'll probably have to cut it back a bit to move it.

They do like being planted deeply and I would make sure it is well watered. I wont have to worry about watering all week

I still buy from these, good germination rates. I'm finding that they out perform the other seeds like Dr Fothergill, Suttons etc. Great packaging as well

You might be alright with the lupin, if there's still some green and it's growing. If the one in the ground has flowers developing I would remove them so the plant can concentrate on building up roots for next year

You can take cuttings by removing stems with some of the basal plate in tact so not that far off the mark.

I had woolly aphids for the first time this year. They came, they destroyed, they left

Sowing seeds indoors in Sept?

Posted: 08/09/2015 at 21:30

I don't think you would get very good results with indoor sowing at this time of the year.

You could sow some biennuals now,things like foxgloves, forget me nots, honesty and leave them outside,they should give you flowers next year
