Re: What is this please?

from mary anne

I have one in my garden too. It was a free gift if you spent so much with T&M. Think I had two originally but one didn't survive. Mine flowered last year but no flowers yet this year. I always thought it was a tree peony. Have tried to find the order in my e-mails without success.

Re: this is spreading throughout my garden.how can i prevent this?

from mary anne

In my experience it's not very easy. It has really long tap roots. We love it and I just cut it back after it has flowered. Monty Donn has it in his garden…...

Re: Re: Which clematis is this?

from mary anne

Thanks Elaine. I'll certainly be fairly gentle with it. It is looking really pretty climbing into a cherry tree.

Which clematis is this?

from mary anne

I bought this clematis some years ago and as the label said it was a type 3 have been pruning it every year and got no flowers! This spring I left it to it's own devices and it is flowering now. Suspect it must be a montana but not sure which one. (The cleavers are due to be harvested soon for their medicinal properties or fed to the chickens!) Thanks

Re: Hydrangea propagation age

from mary anne

Hi I have one which I bought as a fairly large plant and cost me quite a lot of money. On the way home I broke a bit off and so popped it in some compost in my propagator. It rooted really well and I took 2 more cuttings last year which also took. This spring I trimmed it back and took cuttings from the trimmings (about 7) they seem to be taking too. So the answer is that it is easy to propagate from soft wood cuttings. You need them to be about 15cm long. I suppose it depends how many you shoots you have on your plant. It is a lovely hydrangea. The plant in the pot is the original cutting. I think now 2 or 3 years old. Hope this helps. MaryAnne PS looks like this was an old post. Hope you still have your plant if not I have a few cuttings!!!
