I have two beautiful clematis out front. And last year, they bloomed around June time, then I deadheaded all dead flower heads and we got a beautiful second flush of flowers towards the end of summer.
This year however, I did the same and we've had nothing. It just looks like a big brown, dry tangled mess. Why is this? I haven't done anything different? Perhaps I haven't watered as much as last year but my Grandma never waters her clematis and they are beautiful, so I just followed her lead.
Could it be that a lack of water has prevented a second blooming? Or worse still, could they be dead?
I really hope not,
If I get chance tomorrow I shall upload some photos,
