propagation boasts and failures

Always thought that you had to choose a non flowering stem, which can be a bit hard to find on these plants. The two I have are flowering again, bit woody so will be worth a go. Thanks for tip re the leaf joint

Clematis montana to cover a 5' high fence

Posted: 07/05/2013 at 19:23

I inherited a montana rubens, think all of them grow into big plants, but really easy to keep in check or train where you want them to go. Mine started out on the shed has now covered a trellis and is inching it's way across the fence

I've seen a fair few here as well, more than I remember last year. I think they are lovely, really enjoy watching them feeding on the flowers

propagation boasts and failures

Hi cotty, managed to propagate clementis last year and have now  planted the first one out in the garden. Taken some Lupin cuttings also a few weeks ago and so far they look ok. Just by chance stuck some catmint/nepata stem in some water and it's rooting.

Want to do more cuttings this year, bowles mauve is one of them

 

 

Does anyone else..........

Your are not alone, I chop up large leaves like caulis and sometimes chop up the ends of carrots,parsnips etc. I often rip up bits of paper and cardboard as well.

There's been a few breakages here lately....... try no nails, it's not water proof but will work for a while. Messy stuff but when it's set you can wipe off the residue
