All of them. They are scientific names. They are either underlined or italicized. Also the first name of each should be capitalized.

Garden disease help!?

Last year, my clematis suddenly died. I thought maybe I'd simply run through it with the lawnmover so didn't think again. Then a huge pink lavatera in the same place drooped and died. This year a nearly wisteria has not come into leaf and neitehr has a himalayan honeysuckle about 5 metres away. What is going on and how can I stop it?

Garden disease help!?
It's honey fungus soil disease.It usually starts at some old tree stump and it threads it's way around other shrubs roots sucking out all it's nutrients.

The chemical that worked is now banned by the EU due to non bio-degrading in soil.

Nothing you can do except look up what plants are immune to the fungus and plant those.

If you want to persevere,than remove dead plant with all roots.Pour Amarillox over area 2/3 times.Then disenfectant a couple of times,then fresh bag of soil and replant.

There could be several reasons why your plants are dying.

1. The soil could be missing some important nutrients

2. You could have some form of insect around the garden area, that keep infesting your plants.

3. You may have a fungus that are getting on your plant specimens.

Check any other plants in the area. Look underneath the leaves to see if there are signs of insects, (mites or aphids) or if there is a powdery substance. This could be a sign of a fungus. If you see anything like this and can't identify it, take a leaf off and bring it to a local nursery or garden center for them to identify.

Consider having your soil tested for the lack of certain nutrients. I hope this helps some. I will link you to the simple solutions section of my website. Browse through and see if you can find any other information that may be helpful to you. I will also link you to the site map, as this page has everything that is on the website. You may be able to find some additional information as well as tips and techniques. Good luck to you and have a great day!

Outdoor Plants?

At a discount department store i got a japaneese maple, Wisteria, and a clematis. The Clematis is turning yellow and the wisteria at thye end is drying out. Everything is watered well. What should i do? I cant plant till may. Its snowing here now

Outdoor Plants?
If you still have the plants in the bags, they might have too much water causing root-rot. If the plants already have foliage you can plant them in containers and keep inside by a sunny window and relocate outdoors after the threat of freezing has passed. If the plants do not have foliage yet, they are probably still dormant and you can go ahead and plant outdoors now.

Keep the receipt though, cause if all this fails most major chains will refund for dead plants.
Reply:Put it in the refrigerator. This slows down it coming out of dormancy.
Reply:might not be enough light try and get some artificial light going, if you want to be cheap go with flourescent if you have some pocket change go to lowes and get either a high pressure sodium or metal halide light, you can use the street light lamps as your light source weed growers do it all the time
Reply:You actually probably want to "heel in" all three outside. They are all cold-hardy and will survive just fine. They won't live in the little bags for long.

Heeling in is a term that means temporary planting, usually with bare root plants which it sounds like you have. You just dig a hole barely large enough to accomodate the roots, put the plant in, and cover with a thin layer of dirt. If it's cold, the plant will return to its dormant state until the proper planting time comes. If it's warm, the plant will start its normal growth cycle and be easily transplanted when you get around to it.

Climbers & flowers?

I have a small square shaped patio area at the back of my property. It is completely paved with the exception of a strip of earth approx 40cm deep in front of the back fence (which is about 3.5m long). Said back fence is a pole style fence allowing people to see into my garden and house from the outside.

Ideally I’d like to cover the fence with climbers but at the same time I’d also quite like to have colourful flowers.

Can anyone offer any advice? I’m a complete gardening beginner.

Having a look on a few websites I really like the look of Maypop’s and I understand Clematis are also really good climbers. Can I introduce smaller non-climbing plants into such a small area or would they not grow well together?

The garden is warm and gets a good amount of sun from around 2pm onwards but is shady during the mornings.



Climbers %26amp; flowers?
I'd look for a passion flower! They have large, shiny, evergreen leaves, beautfiully complex flowers in summer and orange fruits in autumn. They grow very quickly and doesn't mind if it's in sun or shade. I've got one on a trellis and it's doubled in size in about 6 months!
Reply:A fragrant climbing rose with complimentary clematis growing through it would be quite good in this position
Reply:Clematis is a good choice,but use one that flowers in spring/summer, then plant another that flowers in late summer/fall(sweet autumn).
Reply:Akebia quinata, it is semi evergreen and has small reddish/purple flowers with a perfume said to smell of chocolate hence the common name Chocolate Vine.
Reply:I had a beautiful honeysuckle climber in my back gardern-and I say 'had' with a big sigh!

I have a medium to large garden and the climber took one side of the fence- the colour is a mixture of purples and pinks just all over -truly amazing, and the fragrance in the summertime- wow! I used to leave my patio door open it really used to make my whole house smell wonderful especially in the long summer evenings the smell was so aromatic.

Me being me didnt realise that it was dying, last year it flowered about half of what it used to- this year, dead.

When I realised I cried for it, I really did.

Does anybody know is there a way to revive dead plants?

Please let me know before I cut it off-Im depressed.

Go for the honeysuckle-you wont regret it!
Reply:Ivy is fast growing but look very boaring , get a clematis but get one that has the name starting with montana , so montana elizabeth , montana ruban these are the fast growing ones and will soon have what you wont covered up.
Reply:My clematis this year-- on the north side of my home is doing very, very well. I used a 17-17-17 fertilizer for the first time on my lawn, and have made sure I kept the moisture sufficient.

I agree with Sweet Autumn clematis-- it has the most wonderful fragrance! But it only blooms in the fall here.

No one mentioned trumpet vine. It is a pest here, zone 7-- but it is one strong plant. As expected-- hummingbirds love trumpet vine. It also may need annual trimming.

A annual that is pretty is hyacinth bean vine. It is prolific, has purple and white blooms that look like peas, has pretty purple seed pods that overwinter in zone 7.

other flowers? With support from you-- no problem. Remember all that growing stuff is drawing nourishment from that small space-- and where ever the roots can go.

Don't forget pots for color! Hanging or sitting on the ground.

good luck
Reply:I would go for evergreen so its there all year round.


Clematis Armanii

Reply:Wisteria would be wonderful, but it is lethal (beware if you have children). Trumpet vine or any type of Jasmine would be great too...

Adding non-climbers could accent the climbers...even if you put them in some decorative pots. Another idea would be statues or big stones...they are decorative as well...
Reply:Clematis is good but can be picky - some people have no trouble with it - mine are just pathetic.

Cotoneaster is a hardy plant that seems to take ages to establish but once it has it will just keep going - I have to trim it all the time or it would cover the windows.

Wisteria is lovely but I think that's quite slow growing as well.

But you could attach pots partway up the screen and train things from there while you are waiting for the others to grow - just an idea - I used on my porch trellis.
Reply:If you are looking for a perennial vine, then it's hard to beat Clematis. My personal favorite climber is Sweet Autumn Clematis (Clematis maximowiciana or C. terniflora); a fast growing twining climber that can reach 20ft or more. While normal Clematis blooms early, Sweet Autumn Clematis will bloom late August until freeze (we're in Zone 5 here). Mine is completely covered with fragrant, white, silver-dollar sized blooms every year. It prefers to keep it's feet in the shade, so I planted a few Rudbeckia in front of it.

To add color, I usually plant several annual vines nearby; usually Morning Glories (Ipomoea) or Black-Eyed Susan Vine (Thurnbergia)

Hi! Advice or Ideas on Climbers for Screening Please?? =)?

Hi! we are in Queensland and are renting, the back fence is... well... simply chicken wire and we are in a area where we have no neighbors and a field behind us which means all our back garden is exposed to a main road and I'm really not comfy with that... so I'm looking for screening.

I was thinking about using a couple of pots some wire and a non invasive climber to do the trick. First I thought maybe passion fruit but they seem to turn into a weed that will over take the garden.... as we are renting I cant afford for this to happen. Also the other factor is we have dogs soo something non harmful.

In all honesty I'm looking for a lower maintenance climber with fruit is a bonus but as long as it has some nice flowers for a visual effect, something I can hook up and feed and water but don't have to worry about it taking over as my partner has a disability and I wont have much time to attend to it. I love the Clematis too... %26lt;--- will that work?

Thank you, its really appreciated

Hi! Advice or Ideas on Climbers for Screening Please?? =)?
Biennial: Wall flower Cheiranthus fragrant flowers March/April in sunny spot lime preference.
Reply:Clematis would be nice but are not evergreen. Have you a nursery close by? They will advice you as they would know what would grow best and also what would suit your purpose. Your hardest job will be what to choose.
Reply:What about planting beans or peas that climb? Will clematis flower vines grow there? Or can you weave small twigs and branches into it to make a screen?

Which Armandii plants are poisonous to dogs??

Am looking to buy Clematis Armandii but have a new puppy and would like to know if the "snowdrift" is toxic for dogs.

Which Armandii plants are poisonous to dogs??
