AHow much you feed a clema­tis de­pends on whether it’s grow­ing in the ground or in a pot. In the open ground you just need to ap­ply an or­ganic rose or tomato feed to the soil in spring, while pot­ted clema­tis will need a high-potash liq­uid fer­tiliser ev­ery week from spring un­til flow­er­ing time. How­ever, it’s best to stop feed­ing once the flow­ers open be­cause over­feed­ing could re­duce flow­er­ing time. Any high-potash fer­tiliser for flow­ers is suit­able, or you can use a tomato feed.

Stop feed­ing when clema­tis bloom
