Clematis care

Amateur Gardening - - A Gardener’s Miscellany -

Plant into well-con­di­tioned, well-drained soil. Po­si­tion the plants some­where they’ll have cool roots but sun fur­ther up, though many are shade tol­er­ant.

Plant large-flow­ered sum­mer-bloom­ing clematis so their stem bases are buried 2-3in (5-8cm) be­low soil level. Plant the rest nor­mally.

Prune spindly newly planted clematis to 12in (30cm) above soil level to en­cour­age mul­ti­ple stems.

Wa­ter dur­ing droughts while es­tab­lish­ing.
