Clematis flowering problems

Thanks Gardening Grandma, Richard and obelixx.  When I bought them I was told they were a group 3, so I probably pruned them wrongly as well which won't have helped.  I will give them some TLC this year and keep my fingers crossed but everyone's comments have been really helpful. Thanks

Hi Richard. I'm afraid I don't know whether they are herbaceous etc. I do know that one is called Josephine and they both have large double blooms

Thanks Busy-Lizzie. Yes I've fed them on top rose and I do water them well. Would you suggest giving them a general purpose feed at the time of repotting or will that be too much?

Hi Everyone.  This is my first posting on the site. I have two group 3 clematis which are growing in pots; I bought them about 18 months ago.  I have cut them back in Feb to around 12 inches but when I planted them I didn't plant them deeply so I'm afraid that's the reason I'm only getting flowers at the top of the plant.  I'm planning on repotting them this year; does anyone know whether I can plant them deeply now, or can this only be done to new plants? Thanks for your help
