My neighbour gave me some seedlings this year which I need to plant out when they're bigger. What conditions do they like? It's a red Astrantia Major.
Agree with Verd....and it gave me some good inspiration too!
The drop you're referring to is known as the 'June drop' as that's when it usually occurs. Although my James Grieve tree did it later last year. I read to thin them to two per group, so that's what I've done this year. I didn't thin at all last year and it coped fine but the apples were smaller as you'd expect.
http://www.clematis.hull.ac.uk/ is an excellent clematis website, do a clematis text search to enter info such as aspect and required height.
I would recommend clematis Alaina, it's been prolific for me these year and jasmine of course, always an amazing scent.
I did some research and found it was possible to plant sugar snap peas in a grow bag. I planted about 10 plants in one and set up a net for them to grow up. Imagine my embarrassment when my father-in-law asked why I had planted 10 red cabbages in a grow bag I'd got my labels muddled, I hadn't grown peas before and didn't recognise the seedlings. In hindsight, I had grown sweet peas and really should have figured it out!
I have the same but I think mine suffered in the cold snap we had in March (they're in the ground) This link may help?
Any more information you can give us? How large is the acer and how large is the pot? How old is it? What did you pot it in, is there drainage and do you feed it?
Thanks both, if it's poorly I'm quite happy to take it out, I've got hundreds of the things, I thought the leaves looked different to the rest of them, but maybe it's a different variety?
Have I let a weed grow? That's a dicentra at the back, what's the bright green one in the middle? would appreciate any ideas...
Thank you so much both! You saved my skin, have been out there hosing it down (thankfully not near any borders or ponds) and it's worked.
I do wonder at my own stupidity though - I was stood lamenting my clumsiness as I washed out the paintbrush under the tap - why on earth didn't I think of hosing it down??
