Clematis sulking in pot

I agree with the others, if the leaves are a lime/yellow colour then it needs some food.


Strawberry Plants

Posted: 07/05/2014 at 18:23

My strawberry bed was made up off runners from my original strawberry plants and they flowered and fruited (is that a word?) the same year. Just one question when its time to replace can I put strawberries back in same space?


Can anyone tell me what this insect is

Not sure what it is but by the length of its legs I think it would struggle to get in close to eat young shoots, looks more like it should be on water.


Clematis for Windy Area

Maybe choose one from the group 3 pruning range as they get pruned down to ground level each winter, so maybe miss most of the bad weather.

What is it?

Thanks fairygirl, that was my main concern


Clematis and fir trees

Posted: 06/05/2014 at 06:14

They are not leylandi, and absolutely not causing any problems for my neighbour. Ive been in my home 4 yrs now and have hardly grown anymore in that time, not all fir trees are thugs. In fact the one I took the top off hasn't grown higher or thicker. The only issue I see with having a climber meandering its way round is the soil condition from the trees. Thanks for your comments, think I`ll research some more before I make  decision.


Clematis and fir trees

I didn't put them there, inherited when I moved in. They are not leylandi and can be easy kept in check by taking the tops out. Just thought it would be another way of getting a climbing plant in my garden.

What plant is growing in my garden?

I get these but just pull em out when I see them, I don't worry to much bout weeds they don't grow in the wrong place to annoy us ( although I expect people will beg to differ lol)

Clematis and fir trees

Posted: 04/05/2014 at 19:13

Hi, I have two fir trees about 6-7ft tall not very wide though, would like to cut them down but have a thing about cutting trees down even fir trees so I was wondering if a clematis would cope with rambling up them. Looking at ones in the group 3 range so it can die back down in the winter. I know I`ll have to give them plenty of food as trees will take quite a bit. Any thoughts on this would be much appreciated.
