    Comments about Crocus Clematis'Henryi':

    Soon after I planted it, it displayed two flowers, large and pure white. They are holding up well in the recent (unusual) rain. It has put on a lot of growth, climbing up to a trellis panel that it should eventually cover. A number of buds suggest many flowers to come. A really active plant. I recommend it, especially in the version from Crocus !

      Comments about Crocus Clematis'Henryi':

      This Clematis is gorgeous when it flowers. Beautiful big white flowers. "Henryi" is well known to be difficult to flower. Cutting down to a low height is recommended every Spring to encourage flowering. Yet my plant even though in a good position, with regular clematis feed still has not flowered last or this year. Plenty of healthy foliage, just no flowers.

        Climbers for North East facing wall

        Hi I was just wondering if you could give me some advice please. Our house is a Victorian end of terrace - the side of the house faces North-East. The side of the house is very bare (only two tiny windows on ground floor) and we would like to grow something up the wall. We have had trouble with graffiti in the past and want to paint the side of the house and then put trellis to about 7ft. Can you suggest something that would grow quite quickly please. Kind Regards Joanna

          Hello Joanna, If you click on the link below it will take you to our fast growing climbers, which will cope with low light levels. If you click into each card you can then see the eventual height and spread of each plant - some of them are pretty big. http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/climbers/plcid.15/vid.186/vid.237/ I hope this helps.

        Climbing Plant on a North-Facing Trellis

        Dear Sir/Madam, Could you recommend a climbing plant for a trellis? The trellis in question is set against my neighbour's wall, and faces northward. So, I'm looking for a plant to provide maximum, attractive, fast-growing coverage. Yours faithfully, Peter

          Hello Peter, I have done a search on our Plant Finder and if you click on the following link it will take you to all the climbers which will grow on a north facing aspect and are fast growing (although keep in mind most plants are going into their dormant period now) http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/climbers/plcid.15/vid.186/vid.237/ I hope this helps.
