The Teddington Gardener

Going up in the world with Clematis (more pretty things from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show)

Plenty of glorious clematis on display last month, particularly on the Thorncroft Clematis exhibit. Really makes me want to grow more at home! I spoke to a very helpful past Secretary of the British Clematis Society – http://www.britishclematis.org.uk/ – and if my love affair with roses ever falters then I’m certain to hot foot it to their door.
