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.

Re: Re: Fuchsia

from Elaine

Hello John,

Many apologies for such a late reply to your very good suggestion regarding a Fuchsia hedge.I haven't checked my forum for ages as nobody had replied. Yours is the only reply to my request and it has proved to be just what I am looking for so it was well worth the wait!...I intend to take your advice and and order some mixed Fuchsia Magellanica and hopefully my small front border will look lovely in a year or so. Thank you so much. Elaine.

Ceanothus 'Arboeus Trewithen'.

from Elaine

My Ceanothus Arboeus Trewithen Is very healthy, although several of the branches are now overhanging the lawn. Can I prune them back quite hard so that I can keep it under control in my small garden. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Fuschia

from Elaine

I would love to have a colourful fuschia hedge. Can anyone suggest a suitable variety? The planting area will be south facing with well drained soil behind a 2 metre high x 7 metre length wall alongside a False Acacia tree. Most of the fuschia I have seen are either too small or simply do not inspire me. I welcome any suggestions please.

Re: Re: Winter Clematis

Hello Angie,
Thank for your advice. I surrounded the ''Myleen'' with a copper ring to protect it from slug attack. I am hoping it will revive when the weather warms up a little. Elaine.

Hello Kathy,
Thank you for your reply. I am located in Liverpool. At the moment the clematis seem happy in the greenhouse so I will take your advice and wait until spring time.
Sadly the ''Myleen'' has completely disappeared, I am hoping it will pop up later in the year. Elaine.

Winter Clematis

from Elaine

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.
