Tropaeolum Speciosum - what next?
Hi again. I have posted a question about this lovely climber, which I have always wanted to grow since I first saw it many years ago at Sissinghurst Castle gardens. Last year, I ordered three plants from Wisley and in they went after a long, long wait for them to arrive! Well, they only grew up to about a foot – well two did, the other seemed to have been eaten! I asked for advice on the site about over-wintering them and waited (with not much hope, I admit). BUT
Here’s a shoot – definitely.
and another – also definitely – from another plant.
And this one too? BUT – here comes a problem.
This shoot (and another like it) is coming up about a foot away from where I planted it last year. It certainly appears to be a T.speciosum. Could it be? Does this plant do that?
and the one that got eaten – I need a magnifying glass to be sure, but there’s a tiny little shoot coming up which I THINK is one.
And now having bored you all, I’d love some advice please, about how to care for these shoots to get them to grow and flower!
Thanks for reading this far .I hope someone can help.
