Problem with Albizia - is it dying or is there hope?

I fear that's dying.

I've never belonged to the 'wait and see', 'scratch a bit of bark and see if it's still green'  school. To me that's dying and not an asset to your garden.

Clematis confusion

Most years I don't do anything

Are these aquilegia seedlings?

Posted: 08/08/2016 at 22:29

Aquilegia are easy from seed. you can sow them fresh and they germinate  within weeks. Or sow as Carrie Thomas (Touchwood Aquilegias, National Collection holder) advised some years ago. Sow in a cold GH in January. no heat, they germinate about March.

It produces fruit in summer from a spring sowing, couldn't say how long in weeks. Probably depends on weather
