Hi Everyone Happy Xmas and New Gardening Year !

I just need advice on Clematis please, I planted it up in September and it was alive and thriving , now since it has been a mild Autumn/winter then colder and light Snow this week, it has gone dry, brown and crispy?? It is in a deep pot ( with good drainage) and on a South facing wall, so what could be wrong? I really want a climber in my small patio, but haven't had much success here or in my last house, help?? Connie
