Well I am very proud of my new tub! I have a mixture of Dwarf Pinks, Salvia microphylla and a nemesia, in the winter I will put the tub in the shed as the Salvia is half hardy and hopefully will grow again next year, what do you think?

Thanks for the replies, have been away so only just back.  To answer more of your questions, the clem is a Rebecca grown by the comapny Verve.

The pot is not plastic is it teracotta and we were advised to buy this size by the garden centre.  We did put lots of pebbles in the bottom to aid drainage, and used a good make compost again as advised by the garden centre.

We have also fed the plant with a good plant feed.

In recent days it looks even worse than the original picture and so am assuming that we've lost it

Ok to answer some questions, the clematis is in a good sized pot with good drainage (pebbles in the bottom) def planted deeper than it's last pot, we have moved it to the sun now rather than the shade,

Does anyone have any advice on some hardy plants that we can put in a huge terracotta pot we have please? the area is in shade all day so need to take that into account, we've also put some wall baskets there either side and would like to put some hardy plants in those that hang but don't grow too big, any ideas please? very new to all this! thanks in advance

We've planted a new clematis is a big tub behind our shed to hopefully climb up some trellis, the area is very shaded and we've noticed that almost overnight the leaves have gone brown and most of it has wilted badly, the flowers seem ok and there are some new shoots at the top and a couple down the bottom, we've moved it into the sun hoping that it will pick up, we're very new at this gardening lark and have had problems in the past with these plants, any advice gratefully received!
