Don't actually have a picture of the view from our garden at present. Would be a bit like Lou's if I could get up high enough.

How to prevent clematis from wilting

Posted: 09/03/2016 at 12:47

There is nothing you can do to prevent it, other than plant deeply.

We have over 100 Clematis in the garden and I have never seen wilt here, even in the most susceptible types.

Very country. Soil is silt/peat. Very windy garden. Frost pocket. Half the national average of rain (except this year). Fast draining very rich soil. (ex outdoor reared pig farm.

Been a garden or sorts since the 1640's.

Don't know where your worry is coming from, but wilt in clematis is very rare. More often than not when a plant dies down suddenly, it is because of slug or snail damage at the base of the affected shoot.

All Clematis except perhaps the very dwarf ones and herbaceous types do better with deep planting.

If you left any of that root it will regrow.

I do spend a lot of time here removing self seeded Cotoneasters of various types, but never seen any outside the garden itself.

Could well be, except that they should have legs at the head end. If no legs then wireworm larva is also a possibility.

Or you could spread it out on concrete and use a flame gun on it, or one of those steam wallpaper strippers. Done both and they work. Then put the compost on your garden.

I like the big leaves on Elecampane , Inula helenium .

If you pollard Paulownia tomentosa, every year, the leaves get as big as Elephants ears.
