Clematis pruning

Posted: 11/10/2014 at 15:40

Obelixx, what does Clematis feed contain, that a normal high potash feed does not? I just feed mine a general purpose feed in Spring and then high potash feeds regularly through the Summer

It is Himalyan honeysuckle - Leycestria Formosa.

I have never tried that Fg, but it sounds a really good ides. It should keep the weeds down, and then give a nice nutritious base for the lawn.

Just in for a coffee. Absolutely beautiful here today.

I am so surprised at how much is flowering, despite me being around to "primp and pander" Dahlias and  Cannas still flowering, and the Asters are putting on a good show, but the weeds are taking over.

Hope those with rain get some sun later.

Morning all. Sunny again. Need to continue getting things back to some semblance of order.

Hope Twigs have fun, plus a good trip for Chicky. Hope Spike is ok Verdun. I am not Arctic bound till next summer, don't think I would survive for long in an Arctic winter.

Been listening to a lot of sad stuff over the last few weeks while looking after mum.

2 that got most play were: Blurs - Out of time and Seal - Kissed by a Rose

Well that was a productive day. It has been so long since I was in the garden, but a few hours and all the other problems start to melt away.

As usual didn't do anything that actually needed doing, but plenty that took my fancy.

Dove I wish I could ignore myself.

Can someone tell me when's it's best to hard prune a lilac?

Paul, in order to get next years flowers, you must wait until after flowering to prune.

Sorry Fg, but it is lovely here, jumper off and weeding has begun.

There are some late butterflies around which is lovely. I am starting to feel the tension flow out of me; at least I hope that is what it is !
