Update: clematis now has its feet in total shade, the rest is in the sun for about 5 hours per day.
It has had plenty of water and is free draining, no water logging (have checked - soil nice and moist).
No insects to speak of.
I have put down eco slug pellets, that normally work well in other area, but haven't seen any telltale traces of slime ever.
I've even sprayed it with fungicide, in case it is a fungal wilt.
It is getting yellower by the day and there are no more new shoots trying to merge. Only 2 set,s of the original 6 are left.
It is definitely going to die at this rate, and I've absolutely no idea what to do next.
I've only ever had success with my clems and I have tried all the advice - HELP!
