Clematis 'mrs Cholmondley'

This Clematis has never let me down. Flowers twice a year. Spring and Autum. trained on a trellis, intermingled with Clematis Montana pink and C Montana White. Three real beauties.

Easy growers, they love farm manure.

I have a few clematis dotted around the garden trailing on trees and arbours.I find they love the company of other plants near them. I dont give them any special treatment. Make sure for the first year till they get established to water and feed them. Follow guide lines when to cut them back and which ones. (Marigold Badcock's Success with CLEMATIS) book is very useful.

NEW ARRIVALS

Allotment gardening have taken a new level. Gone are the days when retired gentlemen took on plots not only for growing veggies but to have a bit of peace and quiet and a beer with the other guys in an allotment shed.

It is most encouraging to see,with the help of Media coverage young families taking on new plots.
Derelict plots are now cleared,ploughed and rotivated to accommodate a growing waiting list on most sites.

What an excellant way of encouraging young families to grow their own Veggies as it tastes better and also educating their children to do the same.

There is a good community spirit on our site and the enthusiasam shown for projects within the site is very intense.

The older generation of plot holders have shown such great tolerance and acceptance. They are only too pleased to share their knowledge,sharing seeds and plants to our young plot holders.

Hopefully this trend will continue and not just a flash in the pan.

Good luck to all you allotmenteers!!!!!!!!!!!
