Chocolate Vine climber Akebia Quinata

Posted: 21/09/2014 at 15:07

West Acre has a climate of its own and grows things that shouldn't survive in East Anglia. Also produces fruits from things that don't fruit in East Anglia.

In my experience akebia is loads of rapidly growing leafy stems and the odd flower. In all the years I've grown it I've never seen a pod. Not even a tiny one

 BUT

artjak says the RHS site says they need another clone to pollinate

How to beat this weed?

If they're foxgloves they'll pull up easily and be gone, though  more may germinate. 

It looks more like green alkanet to me. This has much deeper roots and it not removed easily but a dose of glyphosate will do it. There are plenty of growing leaves there now. Glyphosate works on strongly growing leaves. At this time of year it takes a long time to show effects but works well.

See how the snowdrops go. Drying out is not generally recommended. That's why they're sold 'in the green'.

I wonder about some sort of poplar but there will be plants in Seattle of which a Fenlander knows nothing.

does rootgrow go off?

It won't do any harm but if it were me I'd just scatter it around the garden and buy some new for planting things.

There will be similarities within the different batches. Seed from a red won't give you a predominantly yellow mix etc
