Can I grow a Clematis alongside a Virginia Creeper?

Posted: 07/06/2014 at 13:39

I agree with most, in that Vc. is very vigourous and will most likely engulf Clematis.

As Nut says it looks very like argutifolius, which ised to be known as corsicus, but they have lime green flowers, so maybe not.

Wow what a lovely day, sometimes having a bad back is fairly pleasant. Have been sat in the garden reading Christopher lloyds book on colour. Great read, especially his rather wicked sense of humour. [ If I am honest I was mainly looking at the pictures ]

Hayloft are replacing the Malvas I ordered, as they arrived covered with rust, not impressed.

Lovely story Fg.

Hope all have a great Friday, storms tomorrow. Never mind big rugby came on the tele, plus my nephew is playing for Scotland at the under 20s World Cup. Well chuffed. He gets it from me you know, even if he isnt a blood relative.

Makes lovely compost.

This seems to happen from time to time. I dont know if I am correct, but I have always put it down to excessive damp. The plants will be fine.

Morning all, lovely and sunny here, but hole digging has left me a bit immobile. I think I shall just be sitting outside today, enjoying the garden.

A day for all to remember the sacrifices made by others for us.

Hope all the workers have a good POETS day, and lets hope for good weather for all the planned weekend activities.

In high summer it would not be possible to get access to several of my borders without leaving a scene of complete carnage. This is a great excuse for not weeding until stuff starts to die back.

Identify plant

Yes, agree with Nut. Interestingly it is the second Sorbaria we have identified in the last week.

I am with Fg. on this one. Although you can of course grow anything in a pot, Ithink that these are suffering. I think the fact that it is 3 years is telling. They have probably outgrown the container and exhausted the soil nutrients.
