My quite impressive Zebra Grass has looked great all summer and winter (although it's gone brown now) - do I need to prune it yet (or at all??)  Thanks

I think I'd prune it as usual and give it a dollop of Rose fertiliser or similar

Thanks, I'll give that a go.  I did try some anti fungus spray at the end of last year as it looked so awful covered in powdery mildew, but didn't seem to make much difference.  Hope it's better this year, it's a cutting from my Dad's plant that I've had for about five  years and usually it is fantasic.

I have two clematis with new shoots on .....  the Jackmanii failed in the summer due to powdery mildew so hope it's going to be OK for next year.  Not sure what I should do with it - usually prune it around March time - any suggestions would be very welcome ......

Help - how can I rescue my Clematis

Posted: 31/08/2012 at 16:25

Does anyone have any advice regarding powdery mildew on clematis??  I have a Jackmanii which was a cutting from my Dad's plant, and it flourished for three years or so.  However, the last two years it has looked dreadful - the leaves have gone olive/brown coloured with white powdery spots, and the flowers also have white powdery spots and fall off as soon as they bloom.  It is such a shame as it was a magnificent plant for a while.  Can it be saved??  I have been advised to spray it with fungicide every couple of weeks till it completely dies off (which it almost has) it's brown and brittle and looks very sad.  I usually leave it till the spring to prune, but it looks so awful now should I cut it back?  Help!


Robinia Frisia - brown spotted leaves - treatment?

Posted: 20/08/2012 at 14:51

We've had the same problem with our robinia.  It's only a few years old, but the last couple of summers it has looked awful.  Not sure whether to prune it or cut it down altogether.  Such a shame as it looked lovely when it was flourishing.  Would you recommend we get rid of it??  It's sited next to our compost bin, so thought that might have something to do with it .....
