Are you sure it's this one? It's not a climber.

I hack bits of this one when I feel like it.

I like to coppice anything in late winter/early spring, just as growth starts. But lots of things are done earlier or later because it won't all fit in at the right time. Most plants and pretty forgiving, unless they cost more than about £12, then they snuff it very willingly.

Yes please Richard. 2 acres here, is that enough space?

That's another goody.

I need some more of these. Is autumn or spring the best time to plant? When do you reckon to send them out?

I keep looking your catalogue, decisions are so difficult, I want them all. 

I've emailed Kathy Brown re the blue one.

I can't remember re the blue one Richard but I should be able to find out. It's at Kathy Browns's garden in Bedfordshire, where some of us visited last year. She gave me the piece of Vince D. The yellow one is probably Sundance which she also gave me but I failed to keep alive. 

I'll email that pic top Kathy and ask.

These little flowers please me much more than the large flowered hybrids

That's nice Richard, I like a thug

Is it related to this one, 'Vince Denny' ? (the one in the middle), I can see similarities

I've got a piece of that coming along nicely, not in the ground yet

Cut some of the older stems back to base, do the rest next year or the year after. If you cut all the stems back by half you'll have a shapeless blob in a few years
