I can grow this one in the North of Scotland so this one is pretty hardy. So far my plant is eight years old. The way it spreads is by layering itself or cuttings. Can you not ask your neighbour for a bit? I know if I was asked I wouldnt mind at all.

Leaving the garden to itself for a year - what to plant?

Posted: 11/07/2012 at 09:00

I use bark, a good depth of that as a weed suppressant will help, not too ugly either you could always put a few pots of something hardy in (large pots so they dont dry out) something like hardy geraniums which flower for weeks in the summer

help have i killed my clematis

Posted: 11/07/2012 at 08:48

Yes Id agree. Ive just put two montana clematis in the garden this year, Elizabeth and Alba one on a fence and one to cover an old seat both doing well. I know they can be pretty invasive but I can prune them too

What's the weather like in your area?
