Thanks Waterbutts, that's really helpful to know. I thought I would have to line it, but there seemed to be some divided opinion online about what to use.
I'll have to wait and see about the pruning needs. I only have much larger clematis in the back garden that have only needed a little bit of pruning so far. So the shorter growing clematis will be a learning process for me!
