hi everyone, my sister has this plant growing in her garden, it looks like a clematis, but she says it doesn't have tendrils or anything to make it climb like a clematis does.

My sister has placed the stems around the plastic panel to avoid it sprawling on the ground which it would do if left alone.

It came from a bargain stand in the garden centre and had lost its label. It's a lovely plant but most curious , hope you can help her to identify and care for it. Thanks

Thanks everybody, I appreciate your opinions, I think I will plant the best ones, as you say deep in my garden and look forward to them next year, and chuck the little bits away. πŸ˜„

hi everyone, im a bit late I know but I've just taken my tulip bulbs out of their pots to dry them out hopefully to grow them again next year. I have so many, My problem is I am thinking should I really be going to all this trouble, is this what everyone else does?

 I loved the flowers in spring but I've had a right job getting them out and cleaning each one, with some bulbs having little bulblets  falling off ? Are these bulblets potential bulbs for next year, or are they too small to do anything with? 

Ive saved the compost which is far too good to throw away, but should I store it for next year Im not sure.

Can anyone give me advice please. The pictures show them drying in my garage arranged on old towels on a trampoline.πŸ˜…

hi everyone, do you have trouble remembering what the name of your plants are. I know quite a few names but.....?

As soon as someone points to a plant in my garden and asks me what it is - my mind goes blank!πŸ€”

I try to memorise the common name but feel I should learn the Latin name, and end up not remembering any name😳

I don't want to stick labels all over the place so I was wondering does anyone else have this problem and has anyone got a good way of remembering plant names that they could pass onto me pls😘

Thankyou ladybird4,

I need to read up on it now, however I've planted it in a large tub until I know we're it will finally live also I'm away for a week now.

I have tried to follow planting /water information but  its looking a bit sorry for itself, hopefully it will settle down and perk up over the next few days. If not I'll have to take cuttings when I get back.

thanks for your reply.πŸ˜€

Is this chick weed?

Hi Hazel, sorry for the very very late reply on the viola's but I must tell you I took some to a professional gardener and he said they are definately weeds and must be pulled out before they flower or else you will have millions and never get rid of them! ☹️
