I have for a long time had several small shrubs growing successfully in pots. Recently an Azalea and an ornamental cherry have developed lichen on some branches which have failed to leaf. Can this be treated?

Question from pootros

In forum: Hamamelis x intermedia 'Diane'

Hallo everyone,
THis is my first post on shoot. Went to HArold Hillier gardens yesterday and woke at 3am thinking trees!
I am wondering how you think Hamamelis would do in my garden, if I were to plant in some good topsoil and compost when planting over current thin topsoil...( I am prepared for bad news/ realism btw!)
thanks very much.

clematis for shade?

Question from ALAN JONES

In forum: General

Can anyone help please?
We are looking for a not too vigorous flowering climber for the rear of our shed.
It is North/East facing, so hardly any sun.
Would Clematis Barbara Jackman be a suitable plant?.
Would be able to grow to approx 7 foot squarish.
Kind regards, Alan.
