Your top performing MAUVE or PURPLE clematis!

Posted: 27/04/2013 at 13:26

^I like a lot of those already mentioned.  I'm not sure if this one is purple, dark pink, maroon, or red, it seems to vary.. starting off towards the red end I think...

'Mme Julia Correvon'.. a viticella...


Your top performing BLUE clematis

^I'm surprised that Alpina forms are not hardy for some.  This is 'Frances Rivis' which I like very much..


Your top performing PINK clematis!

..this is a close up of Clematis texensis 'Princess Diana', it's quite floriforous when you get it going, which can be difficult I have found...

^..oh that's nice.  I like those arches. I used to have several of those which I got from Agriframes. Not cheap but a good range.   An interesting plot by looks of things...

...I like the top photo above with the long stretch of trellis fencing, I have this urge to plant a 50 foot rambler all along it...

I should also like to know what those pretty blue flowers are weaving through a border to the right of a low wall.  I'm unable to  tell from these photos that we cannot enlarge.

just found this old pic of alpine pan from old house. We were selling so it was cheap 'window dressing'!

 Cycalmen removed and pasque lowers put in.


...and there I was thinking you'd just had a tipple...

Chelsea chop

Posted: 26/04/2013 at 15:48

 I grow 'Autumn Joy' and one called 'Matrona'...   I think to keep them compact you should lift and divide in Spring otherwise they will grow big and flop over...   mine are a bit behind this year, but I do love the Spring foliage on them.   I think I chopped off the old flowering stems a couple of months ago... is that what's called the 'Chelsea chop'... only in Feb..?  probably not the right thing to do... but it was a nice day...

Salino how do you get that Photobucket site-do you just google it-is it like Photobox?

hi Fairygirl, sorry I couldn't get back to you sooner.  I note you've just registered with them and see you are finding your way around with it, I just hate those advertisements that keep popping up.  otherwise lovely images of your Pasque flowers, nice close ups..!!  you're obviously a fast learner...

the Ribes will grow 8 foot by 6 foot and is very hardy... a native of the American plains..

the daffodil looks very familiar but of course there are thousands of them. I might have a guess later...


you might consider doing the same as we have, but it's a shame that we have to resort to this, isn't it?  


I also have a Ribes sanguineum, one called 'Koja' which I find has larger racemes than the others, well, so it is said... seeing as you mentioned it...
