Best support for growing clematis to cover wooden fence

We have chalky, well drained  soil; they were planted last year about 2 inches deeper than the pots they were in. We had a few leaves this year but not much else. very upset!!!!

Many thanks for all the advice--now to do it, & have flowering cannas next year!!!!

Monty don new series

I agree with the majority of the above. Watched the show with interest & relieved to see that it was different from Alan's Makeover ones. Great to see how Monty advised, disagreed & got down to work himself!!! Think it would have been good to show plants' names on bottom of screen when they were being discussed like in Gardeners' World as it was too quick to catch some names & make note  of them.

As with many Gardening Programmes , there's always something new to learn. A breakdown of how money was spent would have been interesting as well.

I use staple gun to attach mesh but have problem of little growth on honeysuckle & clematis[ they have sun all day nut are behind a bushy lavatera & delphiniums---will these be blocking the light too much?

Good point--I also put them straight in the soil; ---as I did with my agapanthus & then heard Monty say tonight that they should be kept in pots!!! 

So much to learn & remember!!

Would welcome advice as to why my cannas haven't flowered; they were overwintered in frost free greenhouse, planted out once danger from frost had gone & they were shooting; have grown about 12' tall but no sign of flowers?????? Anyone out there have any suggestions please??

Time to get busy!
