Indeed Cloggie - always
Niobe is one of my favourites and has been superb this year.
To be honest - if they're young plants, they'll still be maturing and I expect you'll get a bigger, better display next year.
Following advice that Richard Hodson (clematis nursery owner) has given here this year, I've fed less than I normally would (they've only had a sprinkle of B,F & B in spring) and when we had strangely dry weather early in the year, I made sure mine didn't go short of water. It seems to be the best management for them
