Why doesn't my ribes flower?

Posted: 28/03/2015 at 14:17

I threaten them Jane. Much talk of saws and shredders and what happens if they don't behave

I'm trying to root this plant but will it work?

I think you need some stem, not a leaf stalk and less leaf. there'll be too much water loss with the proportions you've got there

Why doesn't my ribes flower?

I don't know if plants like being pruned but I think most people cut back ribes hard after flowering, or after it would have flowered in your case.

But I wouldn't have thought the lack of pruning would stop it flowering. Pruning is what we do to suit us. Plants get on very well left to themselves.

Occasionally you get a plant that just doesn't flower. Years ago I had 2 weigelas, one never did flower though the 2 were the same size and looked just the same except for flowers.

I'd prune it, feed it, threaten it, and if it doesn't perform next year, dig it up.

Agapanthus

From the name I assume this is a variety or cultivar of the blue one and the blue genes will still be in there. More likely to come white but not definitely would be my guess

It dies back completely in winter.

Yes, get it done soon or you'll be damaging the new growth

Have you still got it Blueboots? A photo might help.

If bryony you won't find the foliage now.

evergreen clematis

Richard H is right, things are not always as they should be (and not just clematis).

one problem is seed raised plants. A named cultivar eg 'Apple Blossom' can only be produced by cuttings/layering etc. 

A seed raised plant is not 'Apple Blossom' but may be sold as such. 

Some seed lists contain a lot of seeds from cultivars. The unsuspecting gardener is deceived
