I have 3 or 4 clematis plants crawling over my pagoda at the bottom of my garden. I have a north facing garden and was just wondering if there's anything I could give them to help them along this spring/summer!
Any help appreciated.
Blood, Fish and Bone now, and then tomato feed when growing strongly.
That would do but if they're a bit feeble I'd also give them a liquid feed now as a tonic. You can also buy specialist clematis feed. i've just been out doing some of mine and will get to the rest in the next coupple of days.
Oh - mine are in bud and I'm late to feed - will this harm?
I feed mine in early spring and then again at intervals till they flower. Never had problems with bud drop.
Feed all mine with Tomato liquid I have over 80 different one's & still collecting more
Pete - I have between 40 and 50 depending on how many come through this winter. Until I found the clematis food on sale here recently I'd always fed mine with BF&B or pelleted chicken manure and liquid tonics of rose or tomato food. Works well for me.
