Climbing Fuchsia 'Lady Boothby'

Posted: 15/07/2015 at 18:46

It's perfect with a clematis as they both like their roots in the shade, so grow something low in front or cover the soil with slates or something to keep the sun off.

it won't swamp because you cut it right down to the ground in the Spring just like any other fuchsia, there is no such thing as a climbing one, just a tall growing one.

Verdun, they will leave you to cope on your own, and as most people try too and struggle, they will leave it.

i phoned every single day in the last two or three weeks of my mums life to see if anyone was coming to help. It was a day to day thing. The care package never ever was put into place.

The best to help was St Luke's in Plymouth, Mac Millan nurses never came at all!

Lesley.... Thank you for your comments about my garden, Brian was about six or seven,  his shell is six inches long.

You may find, like my pink or white ones, that over a few years they turn to a dirty lilac, then almost purple then blue.

Oh yes Cathy, done that, apart from the dog and did she moan all the way through the process.

I am trying to get another snail , they are really tiny as babies, not as big as a small one in the garden, but mine grew to have a footprint the size of my hand.

dont worry Fishy, I do the same in the garden, just not the same as the pet one.

It's very pretty, does it grow from seed I wonder?

Use of a Propagator

Posted: 15/07/2015 at 16:15

They will all root very well on a window sill or greenhouse bench, they don't need a propagator.

they will rot if it's damp.

Someone didn't do their weeding sooner, I wouldn't think it was giant hogweed, you wouldn't leave that to grow in the veg patch.
