I have two bowl shaped pots about 45cm dia in each are 3 Clematis of different types. When I planted these I had no idea what I was doing, totally green. 4 years on and a prune down each year up they come. I have a 2m obelisk's on each and start to wind them from the base up when they start to sprout, I can get only a few flowers to come out at the base, all start at the 1+m height. My other Clematis (43 last count) all start flowering from 1+m height.
I use the space at the base now to grow other plants.
