I  asked my mother today how her group 2 clematis arch was doing and she said she couldn't see anything yet so I asked her if there was any leaves at all and she said no, nothing so I asked what had she done to care for the plant over winter and she said it died so she cut off all the brown tangly stems to tidy it up

I wish they would let me supervise their garden but I keep offering and they keep declining

I put things in special places around the house like papers or my favourite scissors and then forget but never with gardening 

Even my clematis cuttings have all been identified sans labels

My soil is super sandy and I  manage to grow sisyrinchium, iris, hebes, conifers, sedum, echinops, potentilla, alpine phlox, thyme, rosemary, sage, alliums, lambs ears, knifophia, tulips, ceanothus and lots more

Thanks for the  advice Liri, and I'd have a good mind to complain about the sticky labels except that I  love all the plants that got stuck to you
