These cheap supermarket clematises have sailed through the winter whilst the expensive ones turned to mush 🤷🏻‍♀️ #clematis #clematis-the-president

Lovely flower. I agree with you. My President is growing better than the more expensive ones. 🤔

@hkyfvr @pelly it’s strange isn’t it 😕 you’d assume that premium plants would excel but maybe the cheapies have more fight in them 😅

They are working harder to be in the same category as the expensive ones 😅

@hkyfvr it’s so vibrant isn’t it 💜 had to be cut right back early in summer because of wilt. Wasn’t expecting any flowers so I’m extra happy to see them. I hope you give one a try! They’re amazing plants and so many different types to fit your needs 😛

It's put on a lot of growth but with the house move who knows what will mind being dug up and how long I will have to wait for the new garden to establish.

Luckily, most of my plants are in pots but will be fiddly to find and dig up spring bulbs from flowerbeds 😅 A friend of mine will help me pack and move the pots in her car.

@ublaszko will be like a pick n mix of bulbs 😜 least you have plant transport. That’s the most important job taken care of 😉

I labelled them to know where different bulbs are but I put labels around general area rather than individual bulbs and they're now smothered with perennials 😅😥
