Clematis climbing up the railings


Clematis climbing up the railings

On the lower patio I have five deep containers with two clems in each that are starting to entwine themselves to the terrace railings. Next year I hope it will be a mass of colour!

Sometimes they can be so slow to get going can't they? Great idea though, and pretty flowers on there. :)

Tell me about it! I get out there with my metre rule every week and give them a good talking to and dose them with tomorite, but like all kids, they dont take a blind bit of notice!!

I have 5 pots, 2 in each Lou..then another round the corner with 2 in it (large and deep pots) besides the ones in the garden (11 I think) plus one on the side of the house and 3 in the front. Oh..Im thinking of putting couple more in the front to grow thru the shrubs.

They really like roses...and they look good with them too. I have Warsaw Nike which was coming along great guns until a beetle of some description has turned the blossoms to rags! so sad... been squishing with extreme prejudice!
