Put it in a larger pot and put and good layer of grit in the bottom and add some to the compost.

This may help

Clematis is a beautifully varied flowering plant, available in a multitude of colours and flower sizes, however all Clematis fall into one of 3 distinct pruning groups: No Prune (Group 1), Light Prune (Group 2), and Hard Prune (Group 3).

Group 1: Early Flowering. Typically blooming in winter and spring, these varieties flower on the previous year's growth only, so if you need to remove damaged stems or control the size of the plant, the best time would be as soon as they have finished flowering. Included in this group are Alpina, Macropetala, Montana, and Evergreen varieties.

Group 2: Large Flowers. Typically larger flowers grow out on new shoots from last year's growth in late spring and summer. Some of these will occasionally display a second bloom at the tips of the current year's growth in late summer and autumn. These varieties should be pruned in spring, right back to where there are strong and healthy buds, before they start their active growth period. New flowering stems will be produced from this architecture of previous growth.

Group 3: Late Flowering. Group 3 Clematis only flower on current year's growth. These blooms tend to display from summer through to late autumn. These varieties are arguably the easiest to prune, as you basically cut it right down to about 20cm (8ins) above ground level in spring before they begin their active growth period, removing all of the previous year's growth.

thanks for your comments.

what i meant to say was, i will be using the smaller rocks around the edge.

I do have larger rocks which are about 25kg each.which would be used as a feature.

i have looked on the internet at pictures of rockerys and found some which look good and i am going to try to copy.

thanks again for all your comments.

Thanks verdun.

I received the rocks off a friend and yes the rocks are all the same.

I know the semi shade will be a problem so carefull planting will be done.

The area of the garden has no edging so most of the rocks will be used to make a border around the area.

I will also be putting down gravel.the membrane is already down,done that this morning.

The area for my rockery is in two parts one measures 10 foot by 10 foot and the other is only 18 inches wide but 13 foot long,this area will be used for height with plants growing down to the large rockery.

hope it works out but may change it before i finish it.

could be water logging,low temperatures or the lack of feeding.

It needs good drainage.
