If you're sowing direct where the plants will continue to grow they'll be fine with the compost that's already there

See original post

 Debs   that's usually 'cos the soil's too rich ... if you grow them in soil as poor as you've got, or the compost from last year's tubs of bedding or similar, without fertiliser, you'll get more flowers.

Clematis Blue Light ought to give you blooms for a couple of months May/June and some more later around September ... has it had plenty of water?  They are thirsty plants, especially when they're producing flower buds and we have had a very dry spring.  Also a dose of specialist Clematis Food each spring is advisable.

Topbird ... I've already decided that next year most of the Rozanne is going into the front border rather than the sunny bed in the back garden ... its leaves are the wrong sort of green to go with the rest of that bed ... it'd be good to see a photo of yours when the three are out together?

What sort of clematis is it?

Different varieties of clematis bloom at different times of the year ... some bloom in the spring and then have a second flush in late summer.  Very few have a long flowering period.
