Clematis I.D.

Posted: 19/06/2014 at 11:19




This is an inherited clematis in my garden, any help with which it is would be great, thanks. It's growing up the 'totem pole' (conifer trunk), needs to be tied in (no self clinging) and each petal is approx. 2" long.

Tray14, I agree however large or small we can all make our part of the world a bit nicer

Really like those painted daisies MrsGarden

Harvested my first batch of sweet peas this morning! Great catching a whiff each time I pass them!

 Thanks Victoria, they are tanacetum coccineum Robinsons red.

Lovely sweet peas btw, mine are doing...precisely nothing!

Thanks KEF, must say he deserves it. AND he was up bright and early off to work this morning - didn't want to miss any of his glory (it was an event organised by his work).

Hi ChrissieB, good morning, Dove usually provides the coffee. I'm supposed to be watering the garden before the sun dries it up, but I'm far too busy on here

Lovely day yesterday. OH completed his Marie curie charity bike ride. He cycled the route of tour de 'yorkshire' stage 2, (York to Sheffield), all 129 miles of it! Well done to him, so proud. His dad, older son and I followed the route by car from Holmfirth to Sheffield. tiring stuff all that driving and photographing!
Think it must be time to water the garden.
Have a good day
