Sweet Summer Love11th October 2012 • Stephanie's Blog • Stephanie Donaldson
The thing about spending more time on the computer instead of working outdoors as I would be when both legs work, is that I keep discovering more plants that I would like to grow. Reading @Graham_Rice’s blog on www.mygarden.rhs.org.uk I’m completely bowled over by his description of Clematis ‘Sweet Summer Love’ which he describes as “the first fragrant clematis with large colourful flowers” while the Polish breeder describes the scent as “delicate, sweet, with elements of evening stock, Viola and vanilla with a note of almond”. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to place an order right now – what better incentive to get back on my feet as soon as possible than a lovely clematis that needs planting. It’s available online from Crocus in 2litre pots and from Gardening Direct in 7cm pots.
