    Clematis with only one Main Stem

    Hello Kevin, I am not an experienced gardener but I know that it is recommended to plant clematis much deeper than when you bought it to encourage more new stems growing.

    WHAT'S BUZZING OR FLYING NEAR YOU 2020

    Yes Mike, it's amazing the distances that birds fly. It's a long commute twice a year. :) The geese fly over here too but it's a bit early to see those yet.
