Happy gardening............

Thanks for the replies. Thank you very much Penninepetal, I can see you must be a very caring person!! I'm a keen gardener so I've fed it and  pruned as stated in the text books - perhaps it will burst into flower next year. Funnily enough it's next to a Kiwi "jenny" and that's never flowered either - gardening can be so very frustrating !!

I planted a clematis "Bill MacKenzie a couple of years ago and it hasn't flowered as yet. It's growing up a south facing wall and is mulched in the spring and  is generally well looked after.Is there anything I can do to encourage it to flower??. Any comments will be gratefully received - thanks.
