lovely suey

20 Sep, 2009

 

this looks lovely- what is the climber? i'm looking for something to grow over an arch and yours looks perfect for the job.

its a russian vine,Skillen,they call it mile a minute as well,i love them.but they can get out of hand.i gave one to my brother who put it next to his shed,when he opened his shed a few months later it was full of the vine,it looked quite bizarre.my brother was not amused.i wouldnt put it near your house or sheds etc i had one where i use to live and it was desperate to get in the house.they grow about one to two feet a week in the growing season.they shed there leaves in winter but i think they still look beautiful all the bare branches.

im having that prob with my honeysuckle i planted this year suey, not sure if i should or can move it before its to big

20 Sep, 2009

 

My honeysuckle still hasnt grown much! This is the plant I was warned about, but I still love it! (the russian vine, I mean!

20 Sep, 2009

 

it will probably go mad next spring mari,, is it new this year

20 Sep, 2009

 

Nope! There are 2, but theyre the ones I thought had died out the front! They've still not flowered, but a good bit of new leaf growth!

20 Sep, 2009

Looks like a secret little place, very pretty Sue.

What a lovely secret corner...I love it Suey :)

I would'nt have a russian vine for love or money, beleave they can do lots of damage to property.

20 Sep, 2009

 

thanks everyone.i have a few honeysuckles sanbaz,they do tend to go a bit wild.i cut mine down last year and this year it ended up twice as big and all over the place.ive moved mine in the past and theyve been fine.

20 Sep, 2009

 

thanx suey, my leaves are beginning to drop is that natural?

20 Sep, 2009

 

you are right Clarice,i wouldnt have one near any building,including sheds or garages.i always keep mine well pruned,any going a stray are cut off straight away.they are nice if you keep on top of them.

20 Sep, 2009

 

i would say so sanbaz,i have one or two that are semi evergreen they still drop some leaves but not all of them.

20 Sep, 2009

 

ok i will check the tag see if evergreen or not, cheers

20 Sep, 2009

 

I think you need to see a doc again if your leaves are dropping!

20 Sep, 2009

20 Sep, 2009

 

Not bad, a warm morning meant I got that bleeping sofa dismantled & a couple of bits done (washing etc......oooh! Must bring it in!) but it got really cold in the afternoon & I fell asleep! Then I did a bit of studying!

20 Sep, 2009

20 Sep, 2009

 

Aye! I need to get into the mindset!

20 Sep, 2009

You really do have a welcoming spot there Suey. You're right about the mile a minute, it does need constant attention, you've done well.

21 Sep, 2009
