It looks ok to me Hosta ...... I've only grown them very occasionally in the past so am no expert 

Not as far ahead as yours yet 'cos of course it's outside in the Norfolk weather.

Clematis flowers

Just the once with the specialist food is all it should need. 

Clematis do need plenty of water, so if we have another dry winter and spring, a bucket full of water two or three times a week in spring and summer  will help it along too.

Clematis flowers

The attractive seedheads are one of the plus points of Markham's Pink ... leave them on.  It's a lovely clematis and yours is still young. 

No need to prune this clematis, just let it do it's thing, but next year in early March give it a feed with specialist clematis food (available from garden centres) and a good watering.   That'll encourage it to produce more flowers next April/May.
