starting seedlings,

I started in September

Then another lot in a couple of weeks ago

But we're probably not talking about the same seeds

Clematis not flowering

What sort of clematis is it Ian?

F1 Seeds or Standard Seeds

Posted: 23/01/2016 at 11:22

F1 seeds are the first generation cross between 2 different parents.

They cost more and you can't save the seed to get the same again, they babies won't be the same.

I'm sure someone will give you the upside of these. I don't use them

Bottom line...

Only if you let the ivy completely cover the hazel so no leaves can be seen. Ivy isn't parasitic and the aerial roots only cling to the tree, they don't feed from it.

I've got some of these, they last years even with my rough terrain

and some insulated Derris for when it's really wet under foot.

Don't despair Firecracker. Most of us had to work up to a good winter garden.


Is this chick weed?

Posted: 22/01/2016 at 18:21

Are there any with true leaves yet?

It might be chickweed but also resembles the one with blue flowers, bird's eye?


Tree suggestions

B-L's birches sound good to me, natural looking but with the extra edge of very white bark.

Not evergreen though which Elena wanted. I wouldn't have evergreen in that situation. You can't completely block a view except with something like leylandii which is uglier than the building. You need something in the foreground to draw your eye away from the thing behind your trees

A potentially lovely rural scene. If you're in the UK I'd avoid anything obviously alien like eucalyptus. They can be lovely trees but I'd use something more in keeping with the landscape.

not with cuttings Tetley

I think it's how I look after them, (or don't look after them). I know where to cut and all that stuff.
