Re: Thunbergia leaves

from Elaine

I overwintered mine in the greenhouse and it has survived. I trimmed the dead stalks and watered Very sparingly. I’m in the northwest so it’s still in the greenhouse until later in May.

Pink not white.

from Elaine

I bought this clematis after admiring it in my brothers garden. I waited expectantly for the first flush of flowers. They are a lovely shade of pink!
Have I bought an imposter? Ah, the joys of gardening.

Re: Re: Anyone know the name of this plant.?

from Elaine

Thank you so much Elaine. I have been wanting to find the name after losing the plant label. I can now look it up in Shoot and and hopefully it will thrive in my garden.

This Clematis is hidden from view, would it be possible to move it to a more suitable position. If so when is the best time to do it. Hope someone has the answer.

Overgrown Golden Ellen.

from Elaine

My Gold Ellen shrub has completely overgrown the path leading to my greenhouse. Is it possible to prune it back now, or do I need to wait until springtime.?

Re: Re: Would this climbing rose be happy in a large pot? The spot I have earmarked is a paved area so I am hoping it will survive in a pot and give some colour to the area.

from Elaine

Hi Kathy,

Thank you for your advice. I have taken the plunge and planted the rose in a pot against the garage wall. I am looking forward to see how it performs. Thank you once again.

Elaine.

Re: Re: This clematis,Bees

from Elaine

Thank you Elaine,

I have pruned it to 6ins above ground. Mulched, and given it a good clematis feed. Fingers crossed and I hope for the best. Thanks once again.
