Interesting Terry I shall try that it may needs a feed now .
Thankyou BB I will remember that
And I was intrigued with Lilylouise twitsed stem.
How easy is it to make a twisted stem.
Enjoying this fuchsia thread very much.
I did manage to keep Phylis growing over winter as a standard from a cutting last r from a friend.
A yr old whip head had nto quite formed last year so I am hoping I can get to grow well this year.
Dont normally buy them form Dobbies so lets see how they perform.
Brumbull your Standards are beauiful how old are your plants.

I have just potted up Paula Jane adn Marink which I bought today.
Gold1locks its now its now 2yrs since I bought it and it was not in bloom when I bought it and still it has not bloomed.
I have bought a new clematis and potted it next to it so lets see if it grows.
Ok Well for now I may pop a clematis at other side and if it takes off good if not no harm can lift it out .
Its on my Obelisk no sign of growth yet .
Should I prune back to base in hope it grows or lift it up and repot into a pot to see?
Oh please share tham Brumbull K
