One of mine is dropping its leaves. Not sure if this is ash dieback. How long has that been around?

We've had 2 trees over the past 10 or 12 year that have had a major leaf drop in early summer. They haven't died but there was some die back. One looks very good now, 10 years later. The other still has some dead bits up there

Not worth digging up tcm, seed is the way to go. It will have seeded from a garden it's not a wildflower in the UK.

It is a clematis Victoria.

If there are no tendrils and it's not very big it might be one of the herbaceous ones. 

C. recta maybe?


Thank You

They're black and hard and so big you'd probably see them lying on the ground. 

They're good germinaters and the best and biggest are the ones that over-wintered but they don't all make it so keep some for spring

I can tell you Nick, moaning doesn't work on stinging nettles, hogweed or bindweed
