I mentioned a while ago that my lovely clematis was dieing back from the bottom and asked for help ideas, as i, and everyone that answered my call, thought it was wilt.Although i found no sign of dead stems infact they were green inside. this week we have a fresh flush of new leaves on all the stem that looked like it was dead, about 3 foot up the stems, so now we have seed heads at the top , coloured leaves from 3 foot to the top, and new green leaves at the base, don't you just love 2012 as a gardening year NOT..still i still have my loved clematis
That's good news. Gardeners have to be both patient and optimistic.
Give it a good feed next spring and you should get a good show next summer.
i hope so , will just hope 2013 is not going to be so testing.
happy gardening obelixx
I have many clematis and each one gives me a problem but they are lovely be careful to not cut back to far until they are strong in growth.
so true, this morning i noticed the main shoots have gone to seed , but the "new " re growth have lovely flowers on.
