What's the weather like in your area?

You know I think you could be right Alina. Perhaps I am hallucinating...  when I got up this morning the paving on the patio was dry and I could actually hear the birds when I went into the conservatory. Alas my excitment was short lived when I heard the familiar deafening sound of the rain drowning out the sound of the birds

I had to drive to Leyland today and it was horrendous on the M6! The rain has been relentless all day & not much better over the weekend...great! Just had to go out and rescue my pots of lilies which had blown over. Caught one just as it was threatening to roll into the pond (I'd never be forgiven if I caused any more mayhem around the pond). Looks like we're going to get a battering from the wind as well as the rain for the next couple of hours. Forgive my ignorance but isn't it supposed to be summer??????

A quick up date on this topic.

I emailed T&M Monday to enquire about my order. I received a reply Tuesday saying they are currently experiencing a slight delay in answering their emails. Today I actually received a phone call explaining that "because of the recent bad weather all orders are being delayed" I wont receive my order until July.

So take from that what you will! I wish now that I'd just told them to cancel my order and refund my money. 

Growing morning glory in a hanging basket.

Hi Kate, I put morning glory in a hanging basket a couple of years ago and it didn't really work. They just seemed to wrap them selves around all the chains and the bracket and anything else it came into contact with. There were very few leaves and only a couple of flowers...nothing much at all really. 

That said I also planted some in the conventional way (growing up a trellis) last year with much the same results. So it's probably me doing something wrong or they don't like my garden however I did notice some small plants growing in the same place again this year so I can only think that they must have self seeded and I didn't know that was a possibility

I've bought a Clematis florida sieboldii which is in a very small pot and the poor thing needs planting out.

I'm sure I read somewhere that clematis benifit from being planted really deeply. Is this correct?

If so is it ok to bury some of the new growth at the base of the plant (there is quite a lot of young leaves at the base)?

Many thanks

Thank you Gary and LeadFarmer for your replies.

Ok from what you have both said I am expecting a similar set up to the Southport and Tatton Park shows I've attended the last 2 years. I'm still looking forward to my day out and will let you know how it went. 

Thanks again. Anna

Kate I'm begining to think I've been forgotten too. If I'm honest I've even forgotten what it is I actually ordered as it's so long since I ordered them

Oh dear not what I wanted to hear but as I've not been before I'll keep reminding myself of "nothing ventured, nothing gained" 

Is it all under cover or will I require a waterproof coat & wellies?

I've had one of these for years and never done anything with it until last year when I gave it a good prune and it's absolutely beautiful this year. More flowers that I can ever remember it having before.
