Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Plant with the crown of the plant 5-8cm deep to encourage new shoots to grow from below ground level.
  • Clematis like a cool ‘root run’ so try and plant so that the roots are shaded.
  • If you are planting in a sunny position, place some pieces of slate or flat stones on the soil after planting or use groundcover plants to keep the roots cool.

Care Guide

  • Feed in spring with a general-purpose feed, avoiding the stems.
  • Mulch immediately afterwards with organic matter such as well-rotted manure, leaf mould or garden compost.
  • Water regularly during periods of dry weather in the first few seasons after planting, especially for container plants.
  • Clematis in pots should be given a liquid feed through the summer and early autumn. Montana Clematis should be pruned when necessary soon after blooming, removing only wood from previous years - basically a tidy up when it has finished flowering. New summer growth will bear next year’s flowers and should be trained and tied in accordingly.
