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.

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

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.

Pumpkins in pots

Hi I grew some pumpkins last year with some sucess but was wondering if there are any small varities that can be grown in pots?


Posted: 03/04/2012 at 08:32

Not grown that variety but planted others. I would imagine they would be the same. Just pop the onion bulbs in the ground about 6inchs or so apart either just cover the tops or leave alittle bit poking out, protect from birds though. Water well and wait.
