clematis wilt can you help
can i save my plant
If you are really certain that it IS wilt and not just drought that is causing it, then cut back affected stems to a healthy one. Spray the remaining new growth with Bordeaux mixture. Repeat the spraying next spring and hope.
I almost killed my clematis earlier this year, all I had was root and a small stem, put it in fresh pot and soil let is sit in a cool area of the green house, usually the floor, and with a little tlc it came back to life and is in the garden growing nicely
The main reason for Clematis wilt is the plant not being planted deep enough. It is the one plant you plant deeper than the level of the soil in the pot. I always bury a couple of inches lower.
