no flowers and no sign of any

..re. the Hydrangea...you appear to have pruned it correctly... the problem I've had with 'Limelight' this season is that snails have eaten the flower buds... I have one left.. I wasn't quick enough early on to salvage this... like most other people we have simply been overwhelmed this year... it's planted in shade and otherwise would have done really well... so my fault...   not sure if this is what's causing your problem...

..a Clematis I used to grow, and want to obtain again, is 'Souvenir du Capitaine Thuilleaux'....

...introduced in 1918 and bred by Monsieur Thuilleaux in memory of his son, who was killed in action in WW1....

...I like a plant with history...

..in the last few days I've started picking mine as they have ripened...'Sungold'.. and 'Orange Paruche' which are both quite similar... lots of trusses on the plants..greenhouse... seeds sowed in late March I think...

Dream plant....top of your wish list

..one of the Hypericum's....perhaps 'Elstead' or 'Magical Beauty'... my neighbour has one or other and is giving me a cutting... not sure which it is... so looking forward to that...not one I've grown before...

What have you learnt this year?

..after 30 years of gardening, I have finally realised I buy too many plants... thinning out is a must for next season... and absolutely no replenishments....
