Clematis cuttisngs

Posted: 06/04/2013 at 10:58

I had some success with my clemantis montana. Did take the cuttings last year when the plant was growing strongly.

Followed your advice Bunny, worked a treat fingers crossed got 3 new purple ones all for free. Might not have to ever grow them from seed again

One I had almost forgotten about, thought it had died has just started to pop through. Think it was a white one. Will now have to move the little one to make space for it

Need help with different types of plants

I have a similar bed that I've been trying to plant up. Apart from Spring bulbs, I have found that my Lupins do ok as well as Aqueligias. Had some success with the perennial geraniums. Still looking for suitable plants that will flower in the Summer though as the bed can look a little bare at that time of year

Lupins

Posted: 03/04/2013 at 18:00

One idea someone told me was if you think a Lupin is passed it's best, split it with a spade and replant in Spring. Haven't been brave enough to try it............yet, the large one without much growth might get this treatment, if it doesn't start growing.

Both my other large ones have got quite a bit of growth on them, some of the leaves are a bit damaged, don't think it's anything to worry about.

Will try a root this year Bunny as the purple one is absolutley stunning and would like another.  Not grown the dwarf types, are they annual or perennial?

Slugs and snails love the fresh young leaves, I use a one off dose of slug pellets if the small plant is being devoured, gives it time to grow a little. After that I don't use anything.

I love lupins
