brown leaves on clematis

Posted: 20/07/2015 at 16:28

Which part of the plant? 

A lot of clematis lose leaves lower down, or sometimes a stem can get damaged if it's in amongst the plant

Afternoon all,

Overcast all day but very humid, was dripping sweat while doing housework early this morning 

After that I got outside and got a lot done

Bath time now

Good morning all 

Haven't been around to post between work and sleep let alone read what's been happening, hope everyone is well and all pets are content

Good luck if needed, otherwise very well done,  

Relaxing this morning before a week of other work but don't worry its fun

Even the driving lessons are less stress now I've gotton to grips with it  

The hardest part of my week will be getting my planting choices right

 Yvie,  I grow 3 clumps of Acanthus, best planted out of midday sun but not full shade. They have fleshy roots and difficult to get rid of once established. Leaves can bully other plants, I just snip offenders off. They sulk a bit in full flower, haven't worked out how to combat this yet, perhaps clever companion planting 

My soil is rubbish but they have flowered every year barring one and I feed it to get flowers

Nice to see you DD, pics please if you visit a garden

Morning all 

Overcast but warm here. Got a lot done in the garden yesterday and still got roses to tie in, plants to plant, cuttings to take before the weekend's shifts but very pleased with results out front where a bit of taming was needed 

Have a lovely Friday if you're at the salt mines
