People Leaving in a Huff

Posted: 27/03/2017 at 16:43

Must say I enjoy looking in on GW forum, posting a few bits and pieces, learning how peoples plants react in other parts of the country, swapping a few stories, and clematis seeds, I thought that was the name of the game, not slagging other people off.

Which Clematis for which wall?

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.

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 ?
