Absolutely no way would I spray it on something I was going to eat - have a look at this

Clematis it dying?

Crikey!  That doesn't look very happy does it?  I wonder if it's really too warm for it there in what you say is a sunny spot.  Clematis like to have their roots in the cool shade.

You can dead head which will keep energy in the bulb for flowering again next year, but they won't grow new flowers in the same season.
