Just give it lots of love this year, cut back the dead wood, and I bet it will bounce back next year.

My clematis is growing about 2-3 inches a day now. Its getting ready to take over my mail box
We do, actually, have some 'Lady's Mantle' at the foot of the clematis, exactly for that reason. The more we think about it, though, the more we consider that the soil depth there may be the issue; it's between the driveway and the house and only about 8" deep there.

Also, the clematis dies at about the same size 3 years in a row now, so, 1 + 2 = new location. : grin :

New pic of the garden;



In the foreground is a sweet banana pepper plant, with some kale to it's right. Behind that, are the bush beans, which the rabbits are going to finish off if we don't get a fence up soon!

Just in front of that rose are the tomatoes - they need some heat and sun to get growing; we've had an extended spring this year - not that I'm upset about that.

You can't see the squash plants in this pic, but they're to the left and out of frame; we found out they like more sun that we're giving them, so I doubt they'll do anything too wonderous this year. :|

The rose seems to like it there.

Beautiful garden cJw! Unfortunately every plant I touch seems to die.

I've got spring pics to add...
I took the first 2 at my grandparents' house in Louisville this weekend, and the third one was taken in my front yard- aren't they cute?

adorable bunnies!

I love the 2nd pic - fuschia is one of my all time fav plants, gorgeous, over-flowering and multi-colored; what more could you want?

Here in Lou the lillies have started blooming, but we just started a week long rain forecast, so we'll see if I can ever get pics. :|

Great pics you all. I need to take more. I wanted to get some of my bearded iris but they are about done. My roses are budding though so, I'll get them. :P

Beautiful Fluff! Do you have anything rigged to keep your peonies off the ground? I put some stake things in the other day, but it doesn't look very nice.

Thanks Meredith.
They are planted along a fence. We use twine and tie them up. Hey, don't the purple things look like zoos? That's why I had to have them. lol
