Great philippa smith2

thanks for your advice, I have had them in our garage all winter which I will do again this Autumn, I'm glad you mentioned the benefit of the clay pots I think they look nicer in them, I think I will cover the soil with stones to help with drainage and think they will look more tropical,

thanks again????

I would say go as wild as you want too, it's your shed and garden, the more adventurous you are the better, and the more you'll feel at home.

You will be glad you did.I painted my shed with the Purple Shades paint and added cream around the window edges and the two half doors I was a little worried at first but i love it, my garden is my playground.

 Hi, excuse the slightly distorted photo, but is anyone growing one of these, if so can you share some advice on how best to look after it please.  I've just repotted this one in mixed compost and grit and included a couple of handfuls of multipurpose fertiliser. looking on line for advice I read it was best to plant it  within a plastic pot As they quickly become root bound and may have to be smashed out of the pot ? 

Also the watering procedure sounds a bit daunting too. I love the look of the plant but I'm now concerned about the care of it ???? 

Any advice is welcome, thanks

Hi KT53 the Cuprinal range 'Shades' are lovely colours and are a preservative too.

Montana clematus

Posted: 30/04/2016 at 16:04

My Montana died with clematis rot in its second year so well done to you, I was so angry with myself but guess that's the joys of gardening.

 Does anyone know how far away from a tree montana 's should be planted, or any other type of clematis for that matter?????
