Clematis Should I get 1 or 2

Posted: 18/03/2013 at 08:51

Good Morning, If you can buy two of the same colour you wont be disappointed they are large flower types Lidl don't print the names of clematis,so be bold and buy two if you don't your local G/c will charge you €15 or maybe more per plant

I think the type you have are made by Gardman.  Try searching Amazon for "gardman cane connectors"

Thank you . that's it exactly .
