    Eryngium Sea Holly in a pot ?

    It's a 12" 15l pot and I'll probably go up a size next year, no doubt it's better in soil but with limited soil to plant in I've learned to give it a go, if I lose this one I'll grow another one.

    What is your favourite task to do in the garden, and least?

    Least favourite is mowing the grass, it can grow like crazy this time of year. Favourite sitting on our lawn with Mrs H and a nice beer.

    Clematis Wilt

    I've never had much luck with clematis, I did keep one for about 20 yrs but they are either rampant or too weak for me.
