Clematis Avalanche question

Posted: 29/05/2017 at 12:31

I think it's simply finished flowering for the year ... it's a cartmanii type, early spring flowering, an evergreen scrambler that needs tying into its supports.   It should be hardy down to -10C 


But it does need a much much larger container.  


NB. Of course ... it's evergreen ... my mistake.  Do not  plant deeper than the crown!.

I think the poor thing needs a pot at least three times that size.  I would use JI No 3 with a bit of well rotted manure mixed in, and yes ... plant it nice and deep.

Gooseberry and elderflower jam is favourite here ... use elderflower cordial if you don't have access to elder flowers.
