Wiltshire, United Kingdom
The newbie again.........
Whilst I'm on here........
Only been in the house just over a year now, so this year was re-designing and painting decking etc, I put in a good batch of mixed stuff to see how the soil was because it has been totally covered with pea shingle for I dont know how many years, not lost anything yet so fingers crossed. However I do have a problem corner !
Top of the garden we have a sun house, to the left of that a patch of grass. I believe there is a concrete base where there used to be another structure under about 12-14 inches of soil and grass. I have put in a rhubarb plant which is doing ok, I have put in two clematis that have died. One honey suckle which so far looks ok.
The area is North eastily facing (I think, I'm a woman and dont do direction!) so it is always a bit damp and dismal even in the summer, the neighbours have a large but contained leylandii hedge, which they said I can cut back but it only over hangs a foot or so.
Any way.....the question.... would the clematis died because it was too damp....or not enough soil depth...
Any suggestions what I can do with this patch.....I will post a picture tomorrow so you guys can see it
