Just watched the Autistic Gardener. We have an Autism centre opposite us and I went for a job there once. Didn't get it but programmes like this really help to educate people, even myself

It's funny how some plant names just seem to be everywhere, proving their worth by being so popular 

I will no doubt end up with Niobe also since there are areas of my garden that really need a pop of colour 

One thing though, this year is the first time I've ever had any Vitacella Clematis and I want more but I'm surprised Mary Rose has such a tiny flower, I'm guessing that species makes up for it by covering their support and being long flowering?

Actually I'm wrong 

The new Potentilla is  atrosanguinea var. argyrophylla which is nice cushion in habit rather than sprawling like the nepalensis and it's the beautiful red

HURRAH!  GC visit for me, I got  Madame Julia Correvon, I eck she's posh

Also 3 new potentilla nepalensis of a deep red persuasion plus a bright pink Cistus for under the tree 

All strong colours needed at this time of year in my garden and all grow well in my soil 

Verdun, I got the Cistus for 3 quid because I pointed out it looked half dead but us gardeners know half dead is another way of saying I can fix this

Evening all,

Busy times for me, I am reading but not always managing a post 

Garden got a lot of rain last night I think, it's that time of year my garden normally fades but this year it's still going strong and I am making mental notes about gaps. Desperate to visit a GC but I need to make more of what I have and just let things mature a bit to notice what is lacking. 

Going to be making a Clematis plan of my garden to keep track of what I planted and add others but in their appropriate groups. If group 1 doesn't need a prune and group 3 get the chop in February then it's best to mix group 2 with 1? But not 3 and 1?
