This is on our north facing trellis fence, new clematis viticella Morning Heaven, hundreds of pale blue bells with a hint of pink interior, bombproof hardy, no vices.

As nature intended, clematis growing through host shrubs.

Can you divide Clematis root in half

Posted: 14/03/2017 at 15:18

Many clematis can be propagated by division, you need to make sure you have a rooted shoot in each portion, best done when plants are dormant over winter.  Any ideas which variety it is ?

Blind shoots on Ispahan rose

Posted: 11/03/2017 at 20:27


Rose Ispahan does well here, grown through a 6 ft metal obelisk in tandem with clematis Lady Northcliffe, we prune the rose hard every year

What is this?

lythrum salicaria, there are lots of different forms

Don't be tempted......

Don't ever buy or accept as a gift even, lysimachia Firecracker, just had almost a full day digging it up, as I do every year about this time. It runs everywhere, comes up in the middle of other perennials, in the roses, clematis, horrible stuff.


Also, arum italicum, fortunately that is Summer dormant but just now it is back in several new places, I thought I had dug it all up last year, and the year before.
