Clematis Red Rebbeca

Posted: 21/06/2015 at 12:58

I have a Clematis, Red Rebbeca that I've had for one year. There are lots of flowers but the plant is growing more bushy rather than higher. It is around 1m high just now. 

Any tips on how to encourage vertical growth.

I am after a bit of advice. The bottom of my garden is in full shade and has three substantial trees. The soil is very dry. I am wanting to grow some plants around 2metres tall that will thrive here. Any suggestions.

I bought a Chinese Gooseberry early last year. It has grown very well. But as yet I have not had any flowers or fruit. Any advice?

sick honeysuckle

Posted: 21/06/2014 at 08:06

Hi I have a summer flowering honeysuckle. It is two years old. Last year it flowered really well. This year it has grown well but I have noticed in the last week that the leaves look a little yellow and black and droppy also the flowers are very weak. I think its been getting sufficient water and not over watered. Any suggestions woudl be most welcome.

Bedding Plants poor showing

Posted: 22/05/2014 at 07:40

Can anyone advise. I have put a lot of bedding plants in and they are really disappointing so far. For instance Marigolds with hardly any foliage and flowers that are very poor. The marigolds are in the same setting as last year where they really thrived.

I am having simialr problems with pansies and begonias.

Pruning advice for Winter Honeysuckle

Posted: 02/05/2014 at 12:54

Ahh! Maybe I should move it to a location that will allow it a bit more space. I have some annuals in that area just now. Would it be ok to prune it now and move it at the end of the summer?
