The clematis really dislikes dry soil, so water more often during dry periods. They like to keep their ‘feet' cool and damp whilst the foliage is in the sun - clematis will appreciate you planting low-growing plants around the base or covering with a mulch of garden compost mixed with well-rotted manure. This climbing plant grows well along a fence or pergola. Help Clematis 'Miss Bateman’ to climb and fill in gaps by tying the new shoots to a support as they grow.
