I. D helenium

Posted: 23/10/2014 at 19:06 a guess, I'd say 'Butterpat'.... look that one up and see what you think... there are several in circulation with this name though but it's a fairly common variety...

...there's nothing you should be doing really...definitely not feeding at this time of year...  as it's on an allotment I presume it to be an open and windy site, then you could trim back any tall shoots to prevent wind rock during the worst of the weather... sometimes just trimming back a few inches can stabilise the plant.   I've just done it with one of mine... no need to be fussy about it... any bits of dead wood can be removed next Spring...

..I'm sorry you've not had a reply to this before now...

Best support for growing clematis to cover wooden fence

Posted: 20/10/2014 at 13:38

..when I put up wire supports for these things I make a grid type framework using both vertical and horizontal wiring, rather like a crossword puzzle....however, with 2 montanas and 2 honeysuckles... eventually these are just going to be doing their own thing regardless of any help from us... in fact I might panic a little at the prospect of having to manage these... they will soon take over your fence, flop down the other side...and intermingle and mangle amongst themselves... but look jolly nice for it... I wouldn't worry about it too much to be honest,... the work comes later when you try to keep them under some sort of control...
