    Clematis fall into three pruning categories (sheered to 30cm in March, short back and sides to tidy up or left to mostly get on with it), depending on whether they flower on new or old growth.

    What determines ratio of female to male flowers on fruiting plants?

    Complete mismatch of male/female courgette flowers this year, I've been sharing male flowers with a neighbour, without which loads of female courgettes wouldn't have been pollinated.
