I agree Pat and fidget

I'll have a pond with more constant water levels please. Mine drop so much in summer I can't grow many waterside plants.

No good asking nicely...

Big birds, directly descended from pterodactyls (?spelling) I think

Davidia from seed Tetley?

I probably haven't got time for that

Clematis might do OK if I find a smallish one. I wondered about Eccremocarpus, I think it would cope better with the soil. Clems always look a bit depressed here

Lou if you get the right euonymus they have little clingy roots like ivy. E. fortunei var radicans, though that might be out of date as a name, the radicans is about rooting stems. Emerald and Gold etc are cultivars

You need a fantasy meadow Marygold. One that grows up tall and straight and never falls over in the wind and rain One with soil that bee orchids etc will seed into and moist enough for fritillaries.

The variegated euonymus are really reliable, I like those.

I don't like the growth style of vinca so much, sort of flat and straggly.

I'd like some white Cyclamen coum for a start.

I have chimonanthus Tetley, I grew it from seed, at least 20 years to get flowers, first ones last year. Lovely but not much goiung for it out of flower. I'm trying to think of something not too overwhelming to grow through it

I think I've fallen in love

Might be Dove

I bought a variety of viridis last year, it's out there and flowering but I don't know if it's really hardy enough to survive a proper winter. But maybe we won't get one. Nothing lower than -2 forecast at the moment

I like fritillary's garden but with someone to do all the tree work and shredding so I can just mess around with plants

Is this Asparagus seedling?

Posted: 12/01/2016 at 09:51

I can't see these very clearly but they look like dicots and asparagus is a monocot.

But don't rely on me, I've never grown asparagus

Dividing Clematis

I was given some dug up 'outriders' last year from 2 clematis. They started to grow and have now died back, I hope that's due to winter. I await with interest to see what happens in spring. They're potted up, outside
