I wouldn't depend on non hardy plants to self seed. they might germinate in autumn and die in winter or, if the seed doesn't rot in winter, germinate in a mild spell in early spring and get wiped out by a late frost. They'll no doubt self seed in their own climate

It's unpleasant to be misjudged but surely inevitable if you put yourself out there on the web for all to see. Some will love your (or any other) website, some hate it and some be suspicious of it. 


evergreen clematis for behind rose hedge

or a late scented honeysuckle to follow on after the roses. you'd have to keep it in check though, as you would most climbers

not sure about cleome but when I saved seeds from the white cosmos in a mix, i found I had still had a mix the following year.

Maybe there's a mix of colour genes in all the plants or maybe they cross pollinate amongst themselves

Hi pip

I'd avoid the evergreen Clematis armandii, it will swallow your roses as well as the fence after a few years

what height to you want to achieve?

I sow as many as I can but those I store go in little glassine envelopes that I get from here

They stand up in 2 plastic margerine tubs in a coolish cupboard. One is labelled 'sow in January' for the cold germinaters and the other 'sow in spring'.

Plant ID please

maybe is Ligularia dentata Gid. 

Grenyog Gold is a hybrid of that and something or other so will be quite similar and I don't know the finer points

there are a lot of them.

i don't think poisoning is too big a problem, there have been a lot of hydrangeas grown over time and people still growing them.

There's a lot of work and organisation involved in an NC. More than growing a lot of them.
