Hello, I am new to the shoot site and would appreciate any help offered to me regarding two clematis which I bought in December. When they arrived they were tiny but healthy,as we all know the weather has not been good and the ground was too frozen to plant them. I have kept them in a unheated green house with fleece wrap and they are doing well. They are ''JINGLE BELLS'' and ''WINTER BEAUTY'' Would it be ok to plant out now or later in the season? I might add that a ''Montana Myleen'' which I did plant out is nowhere to be seen !! Any advice would be appreciated. Elaine.

Hello everyone! I recently joined Shoot and looking forward to explore this wonderful site and learn a few tricks and tips on the way.
I am very new to gardening, I moved into my current house late last Summer and this Springtime I had a sudden urge to start growing things. I am a bit clueless and at the moment not very organised on my planting. I am also trying to grow from seed but so far the only success was radishes. (flower seeds don't seem to what to grow with me).
I have big plans for the back garden that include completely redesigning it but at the moment we are going with the existing layout.
I look forward being here!

I bought this plant earlier this year from a reputable garden centre.
So far all I have got is lots and lots of green sword-like leaves flopping about all over but no flowers.
Any advice would be most welcome.

My Rowan tree is about 20 yrs old, bears bright orange berries, is aprox 25ft tall and faces South. It has started its autumn leaf fall now, before the end of July other local Rowans are doing well. There were less berries this year, do Rowans have 'good and bad years' ?
Can anyone help? I Would hate to lose this old friend.

I have recently planted a Hydrangea Anomala Petiolaris and am a little disappointed to see the flowers are smaller and creamier in colour than the slightly larger, bright white flowers on the established plant down the road. Is it usual for this sort of variation?

Hi, I brought some seeds of scented night stock which have grown reasonably well. they have now been potted on, but I am a bit confused as the their appearence. Instead of being upright, they appear droopy with no sort of structure to them at all. Does anyone know if this is normal?

General post from
I live in Redding , Calif. where the temps. reach 100 most of the summer. My lupine grow quite well as far as the foliage but the flower stalks and some of the leaf stems get a little brown then the stalks get deformed and lay down. The flowers still bloom bet don't look so great laying sideways in the leaves. Is this a parasite or some fungus, mold problem?

Many Thanks Em

Have just wrecked a viburnum that was growing in my flowering current, and I didn't spot that it was tucked inside it and even worse - about to flower!
I was over-enthusiastic with the pruning shears. It is now about 30 cm high. Please help - have I utterly and totally killed it?
