Clematis for Windy Area

Posted: 07/05/2014 at 14:39

I want to grow a Clematis on the front of our house.  The wall is South Facing but is very open, and as we live in North Lincolnshire the wall gets strong winds beating against it at times.  Which would be the best Clematis to grow in this area please?

How best to plant my Astilbes in sandy soil

Thank you all.  As the info tags did not say any preferred soil I thought sandy would be OK.  Will try the bin liner idea, water a lot and keep my fingers and toes crossed!

I leave my seed heads until they go brown and then collect some of the seeds (the others I leave to drop and self seed direct from the mother plant.  The seeds I collect I scatter where I want next years poppies to grow.  That is literally all I do and every year I get so many poppies growing that I have to thin them out.

Thank you.  I will and will also put them near my geraniums that cover the soil so hopefully they will help keep the soil damp.

How best to plant my Astilbes in sandy soil

I brought 3 Astilbes today, the info tag on one states sun or part shade, the other 2 show full sun.  None of the tags said there was a problem with sandy soil.  However, when I checked my Flower Expert book it states that if you have sandy soil forget it!  My soil is sandy but we have added to it over the years and I don't have problems growing most plants.  Can anyone please tell me how best to plant these to give them a chance of growing in our soil.
