Back from course, which was quite good and even better finished at lunchtime. Trip to GC ended up with some little dears jumping into my passenger footwell!
Chaenomeles nivali £3.50, white flowers, spiney, already 2' tall, will go nicely against sunny fence and be useful to prick any pricks who try and climb over (am I allowed to say that?)
Also 3 poor dried up clematises for £2 each but why didn't I go to morrisons for healthy ones at £2 each? 1,felt 'sorry' for them, 2. wanted a 'challenge', 3. they do have some growth and potential, 4. 2 I had chosen anyway from Taylors website 5. and the most likely reason - I've gone mad!
The president, Montana Tetrarose and Snow Queen.
So that's now a total of 10 climbers in the last couple of weeks! Have chosen mostly vigorous clematises, so my 3 arches will be swamped! No really, not all will go on the arches - at least 2 have different places to go...
Well, it's still a reasonable day here, windy but not overly so and no more than a light 10 minute drizzle so far.
Oh yes, what plant food would you recommend for these lot to get going? Thanks.
