I did have some verbena seeds Nut, but didn't think they had made it.

Durrr  How silly of me, sounds like an excuse but I knew I had something on my mind , rushed out and took the wrong photo (true honestly!)

Acorn shell found close by

The other one duly removed, it was this I meant

Two things I can't ID have popped up, hoping you can help.  Thanks. 



Clematis ID please

If you need to buy another KEF I've got room  

All the pics of different sites look different anyway! One of mine apparently shows the stripe better if grown in semi shade, so various things may affect colour intensity and contrast??? It's all guess work! 

Clematis ID please

This explains pruning.

Didn't realise Taylors was so close to us KEF.

If it flowers may, June and Sept, according to this it sounds like a group 2 which could narrow the ID down a bit. EDIT, just done a search for gen sik and it flowers MJS but is group 3 so that doesn't work with my above theory

Hi Mike, hoping everything went well and you are in good spirits. Are the nurses still a joy for you? bets wishes and don't forget we're still holding your hand.

Verdun, wondered why Kef was so laid back 

Fidget - so pleased your dad is on the mend, it's when he does do what he's told the real worry can set in! Just keeping you on your toes, same as he probably always does

Coffee with friend cancelled cos her mum ill, so it'll be SM and HW for me (as you can see I've made an early start)

Ol, the sweet peas I sowed into pots LAST spring are great, this years are rubbish. I'm also going for autumn sowing this year. PS they aren't the ones which turned into sunflowers!

Goodness me what a lot of winking I'm doing this morning

Thanks Clari, son would refuse to go in!

planting clematis together

Posted: 12/05/2014 at 20:11

I have a few clematis to plant over 2-3 arches and trying to look ahead to their pruning requirements. 

I believe these are all group2 and would therefore be ok together;

        snow queen,

        the president,

Then I have pruning group3 ;

        blekitney aniol

And group 1;

        montana tetra rose

These are in pots and not yet attached to the arches.


I have the following planted in the ground;

I have planted against a fence, but would consider moving;

        bee's jubilee (group2)


And already on one arch;

        Pamela Jackman (group 1)

this is with solanum glasniven (movable) same side as PJ and rose Generous Gardener on the opposite side.

There's an ivy knocking about as well but I doubt I'll use that.

Sorry for the long list!

Your ideas of combinations over a total of three arches would be most helpful.
