I'm not sure when and how much to trim and it seems to stop flowering fairly early in the summer.  I also have issues with Japanese beetles eating the leaves so any advice on keeping those away would be helpful as well.

Any ideas to encourage blooming? Unfortunately they are not in full sun---maybe half a day. I keep them well watered and fertilized.

<![CDATA[Help! My Clematis will not bloom. ]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/478/help%21--my-clematis-will-not-bloom-

I have had this Clematis for 10 years.  I have it outside (zone 6) in a nice, sunny location.  It gets watered regularly, and I have even added Miracle Grow for Bloomers, but I am still not getting blooms.  Every year since the first year I planted it, I only get 6-8 flowers.  the plant itself looks extremely healthy.  Any suggestions, please!

<![CDATA[Planting a forced Hyacinths Bulb]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/479/planting-a-forced-hyacinths-bulb I had a forced Hyacinths Bulb in water that was given to me a few weeks ago.  The plant did very well.  It bloomed and the leaves are now turning brown.  I still have it in the forcing vase with water.  My question:  Can I plant it in the ground now so it will bloom next year?

<![CDATA[What to do with Perennials in Fall]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/480/what-to-do-with-perennials-in-fall Okay - so I have cut back the echinacea and the hostas.  What about my other perennials?  Grasses and things?  Do I leave them 'as is'?  Do I remove them?  What about my daylilies?  Also - when is the best time to divide and replant them?  I live in Chicago.
