Mulberry trees

I should think the time to fruiting depends on the age of the plant. Can you afford a large mature specimen?

Strong smelling shrub/ plant?

A visual description would be helpful as well, smells are a rather subjective. 

Anyone done any gardening today?

I looked at the garden

I went to a Hardy Plant Society meeting

I acquired a Ribes laurifolium

I put 2 pots of snowdrops in the back of the car to take to a friend tomorrow

Is that gardening?

 

Foxgloves - Illumination Pink

I note T&M now list this as half hardy

It's a hybrid with isoplexis which is not hardy, not a cultivar of purpurea

So many frosts

Posted: 21/02/2015 at 12:37

Freezing or close to freezing on many nights but I feel we've had quite an easy winter here.

Lowest temperature -5C, that only twice. Minus 6 or7C is a usual winter low for us with anything down to  -13 or 14C occasionally.

A few all day frosts

Very little snow.

All very easy on the heating bills and for winter tree hackery

New Clematis Armandii

and consider carefully before buying Bill MacKenzie.  That's very nearly as big as armandii. 

But splendid if you have a big enough host. I have a big shapeless conifer which is covered in yellow flowers and fluffy seeds for months

Daphne is too big for her boots!

Hello Rosie

JP  does get big if it's happy.  It's D. bholua, JP.

Daphne odora I've never seen at 7 foot. Mine went sideways rather than up for 10 glorious years then snuffed it.

JP dwindled through the first summer here.

No, it doesn't go with my gardening style too precise

New Clematis Armandii

I agree not C wilt.

It sounds as though it never got going, maybe not a great specimen to start with?

How big was it Lee, what size was the pot?

Id dig it up and look at the root, if that's not grown at all then nothing is going to happen now
