Planting clematis

The autumn is a good time to plant clematis. The soil is still warm enough in most regions and moist to aid root establishment. The bottom of the stems should be buried well into the soil to encourage growth from the base.

Plant of the Week: Conifers

Plant of the Week: Conifers

Super-reliable, versatile and easy-going, conifers are a great choice for all styles of garden. Whether it's clipped yew setting off formal herbaceous borders, minimalist needlepoint spears of Italian cypress marching through contemporary gardens, or a cone-bearing pine to provide food and shelter for wildlife, there's a conifer to suit you.

Not all are evergreen, or even have needles. The lovely maidenhair tree, Ginkgo biloba, has curious fan-shaped leaves which turn butter yellow before they fall in autumn. Others display extraordinary colours, like Korean fir with its steely-blue cones. Get to know this amazing family of plants and you could find yourself pleasantly surprised.
