I only make a small amount at a time,I collect the flower heads about 12,wash them in cold water(run under tap) boil some water add to jug(2 pints) and flowers plus sugar to your liking with half a fresh lemon.stir well,leave to cool and leave for a day,then strain into clean jug ,I like it this way but some times will use white lemonade but prefer it as it is after being in the fridge to get really cool with ice and drink with in a day or two.

Help my clem is dying!

When transplanting or planting clematis you need to plant them deep and water well each day and shade the roots if not they will die,I have killed a few to know that they don't like being moved and you really have to water them well but don't give up on it ,it might come back...
