Have a large flowering double blue clematis (forgotten its name) which flowers in late June. Knocked off a soft stem whilst trying to wrap it around the horizontal wire.
It is about 8 inches long with two sets of leaves. I have pinched out the leading shoot and put it in a bottle of water with some hormone rooting pdr. Would I be better putting it into gritty compost at this stage and will it root successfully at this time of year.
Any advice greatly appreciated because it is a fabulous specimen.
