clematis and black eyed susan

Thanks. The black eyed Susan was really attractive for ages, I was dead pleased with it. It could probably take over if it was fully perennial, it's massive!

Not sure on either variety????

Hi all. I'll post a photo soon, couldn't do it from my mob. I set a metal arch up early this year, to divide the garden. On one side I put clematis, which grew well, but I knew it'd take more than a year to cover the arch, so I put black eyed Susan up the other, which went like a house on fire and did exactly what I wanted.. Lovely flowers too. However, as also I expected, the frost has done it in, but the clematis looks OK. Do you think I should pull the B.E.S off now, or leave it? It looks a bit messy. Is there anything I should be doing with the clematis while I'm at it?

That trough has had it's day so I will be replacing it for next season.
It's done well though, I've just chosen the wrong plants I think!

container plants prematurely dying

Hello, I'm normally quite successful at summer container plants, but I chose different ones this year, and they looked great... Now they've gone really tatty. Does anyone know if I can rejuvinate them? I was thinking of trying to cut them back a bit, but maybe they're totally done. I'd appreciate the advice!

I'll put photos on when I'm the laptop!

Hello all,


I might be using this bit of the forum wrong, but I'll continue till I get shouted at!

We're stuck with what to do with a bit of the garden.  After about 3 years in the house, we're finally getting control of what was a very neglected 60ish metres of pretty thin garden - spending very little money and with no real hard landscaping.


The bit we're struggling with is the last 10 metres - it's under some very high trees, has apple trees in it, and previously obviously used as a dump of the garden - it sort of bulges up with something - whether it's just years of dumped soil or hardcore - it's also got the remains of very heavy flag stones buried, and loads of weeds - basically, very difficult to work on.

I've cleared it down, and spray it to keep it less jungle like, but now I'm stuck for a cheap thing to do down there, until we save up to get it landscaped somehow.


What do you think?  I've enclosed some low res pics I hope will work!

Fairygirl, specifically, what kind of evergreen ground cover do you mean?

The other problem is that at about 30 cms down its Rubble, so roots really struggle

Ahh Thanks guys.
It looks like we've been digging too much then to try to remove all trace. The clip tells you to leave the seedlings to dry up.

Thanks for this, I'll give ita go.
