Hi Both

Just a quick mail to say a big ‘Thank You’ for a brilliant service. The ‘Ruby Wedding’ arrived this morning just 48 hours after ordering, a beautiful example of a plant in prime condition obviously grown by committed enthusiasts. It is now securely planted with all the requisite care taken for its future growth.

Please inform if there is anywhere else I can recommend your services on the Web or otherwise….. will happily give you a five star rating!

Best regards

Richard

Hi Richard, that’s always nice to hear, many thanks for the kind words. Yes one or two people have left google reviews so maybe you could leave one with google for us please?
Thanks again
Cheers

Clematis late sun only

This question was asked by
Denise B

Hello can you advise me if X aromatica aromatic would be suitable in the shade all day but full sun tea time onwards

Hi Denise, yes our plants of aromatica would be fine in that position. As all our plants are 2 years old, this makes them fully hardy and plantable in the garden 52 weeks a year, so I know it will perform well in that spot for you, if planted in the coming weeks
however I can only comment on the growth and performance of our own plants as other people’s younger and less hardy specimens will differ dramatically
Hope this helps
Cheers

Mature Clematis

This question was asked by
Mags P

Help!!I have had my very old much loved clematis removed by mistake by a “helpful handyman”I am gutted – but the guy is still alive -by the skin of his teeth- it was years old “only” a Montana but added character to the house – do you stock and sell older and therefore bigger plants – Mags

Hi Mags, our normal selling size is around 3-4 feet, – however I do have some montanas that are about 8 feet tall and are in 10 litre pots, (and they are in flower at the moment, but you would need to arrange to collect from here at the nursery (by appointment) or sort out your own courier as our courier will not take anything bigger than 4 feet.
Hope this helps
Thanks

What do I need

This question was asked by
Lynn B

Want to plant 4 vigorous clematis 2 white & 2 purple 1 of each colour early & 1 of each colour late.
What is your suggestions for growing in a pot In a secluded south facing patio in London,where we get little or no frost ?
Thanks

Hi, there is quite a lot of choice for you really, however it will depend on what sort of height you are looking for ?
but as a starting point take a look at the following 3 links for early flower

Joe

Broughton Bride

Clematis – Alpina

Then take a look at the boulevard collection and the viticella collection for your late flowers (there are lots of whites and purples in both collections (link below) – hope this helps, thanks chris

BOULEVARD Collection PATIO CLEMATIS

Clematis – Viticella
As all our plants are 2 years old and fully mature this makes them fully hardy and plantable 52 weeks a year, so the sooner you get them in the better they will perform this year.

Help choosing a clematis

This question was asked by
Heather N

Hello
I’ve bought clematis from you in the past, but this one is to go on an arch with this rose:
https://www.garden-roses.co.uk/shop/PERENNIAL-BLUSH-rambler-M309

I’m really not sure what to aim for, thought possibly a darker pink to set off the rose, but would be grateful for ideas – also to flower as long as possible!
Thank you

Heather

Hi heather, the best species to grow with the rose over the arch will be the ‘viticella’ types, they get good height and flower for a long time.
Regarding colour – that’s all up to you really – I have added the link to 4 pages of them below. So you can see the full colour spectrum that we grow
Hope this helps
Thanks
Chris

clematis advice

This question was asked by
Jennifer B

Please could you suggest a hardy clematis that would be in a container, climbing up a pergola, sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Jennifer yes look at our viticella selection, they will all do the job from a container. As we only send out 2 year old plants this makes all ours fully hardy and garden ready 52 weeks a year.
There are 4 pages of them to look at, just click the link below, hope this helps
Many Thanks
Chris

North facing pot

This question was asked by
Stuart C

Hi. Would an “alpina” variety be suitable for the back of a north facing large pot planted with a few dwarf shade loving ferns ?
If so, what is the shortest growing and least vigorous variety?
Many thanks.
Stuart

Hi, yes as long as it has a clear view of the sky (they don’t need any direct sun- but they do need to see the sky) as they wont do a woodland setting.

All our alpinas are around the 6 foot mark, so non are shorter I’m afraid
here is a link to all the ones we grow in that species –
Many Thanks, chris
