It's always windy here in Lincolnshire! Some of my pots had blown over after the last very windy blast. I find that if I remove the pot feet from all my pots and weigh them down with bricks also move them to as sheltered a site as possible, although they don't look very elegant it usually does the trick. Parts of my garden have "wind tunnels" . I have a clematis in a pot growing through a climbing rose and in the earlier part of the year,after we had a windy spell the clematis got hopelessly tangled up in the rose and I couldn't untangle it. It did flower well but I shall move it in the early part of next year to a less windy spot. The climbing rose will have to flower on its own.
