Make sure that the clematis roots are well-moistened by soaking overnight in a bucket of lukewarm water. Prepare a suitable hole in good and thoroughly loosen the soil. Your Clematis will thrive in a mix of nutritious, well-rotted manure and garden soil. Plant the clematis with roots at the correct depth - the top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil, heel well in and water immediately after planting. Clematis prefers a sunny, partly shaded spot.
Clematis dislikes dry soil, so water more often during dry periods. They like to keep their ‘feet' cool and damp - clematis will appreciate you planting low-growing plants around the base, and a covering with a mulch of garden compost mixed with well-rotted manure won't go amiss. These climbing plants grow well along a fence or pergola. Help your clematis to climb - tie the new shoots to a support as they grow.
