Looking forward to it as always. The best gardening programme on TV.

Clematis offer

Posted: 25/02/2016 at 18:36

Mine arrived 13.2.16 and were potted into 7.5cm pots, they all had a bit of a root system and a tiny tiny bit of top growth. I'm pleased enough with them and look forward to growing them on. They're currently out back which is covered and stays well above freezing. When the weather warms up a bit they'll get moved to a grow house with the door open and then outside in early summer.

Strongest Scented Sweet Peas!

I've grown both Matucana and Cupani and last year on the advice from my Daughter, I decided to grow something different.

April In Paris, white with lilac edging and the most delicious scent. I picked them every week and they grew to be strong sturdy plants with lots of flower stems on them. I grew them from seed bought  from Sarah Raven and can't say enough good things about them.

Dahlia's - recommended sources?

Some of the best I have grown are Downham Royal, Nuit D Ete, Bishop of Llandoff, Selina, Waltzing Matilda, all from tubers, various suppliers and from seed, any of the Yankee Doodle Dandy series as well as a Pom Pom mix which turned out to be great. Good luck.

Thanks Kleipieper, it's on BBC2 from 20.00hrs until 21.00hrs. I'm not a fan of MD but starved of gardening programmes at the moment.

Yes I've gone for the Clematis offer too and have successfully grown both plug plants and tiny shrubs in the past. Good advice Dave Morgan.

David Austin Roses, are they worth it?

Very interesting Marlorena, I've bought from both Austin and Beales and only once from Germany but that was through a friend. I'd not thought of looking elsewhere for Roses and will check out the Dutch supplier you've named. Thanks.

Planning for the coming year

Nutcutlet when I was in the GC the plantsan was said that Honeysuckly is great for growing up Chimonanthus (sp) That's what I'm going to try this year.
