Is there a term used to describe Gardeners World journalists ?

Just curious,  Richard.

 Compare your picture with the one from Westphal in Germany, the experts.

Also, clematis do not have petals.

Also, I have heard that Aldi are selling a range of 7 cheap clematis, including Hagley Hybrid and Justa,

Daintiness, I suggested on an earlier thread that your clematis could be Justa.

You say it cannot be Justa because Justa is ' a viticella ' and they have smaller flowers.

Wrong, Justa is not ' a viticella ' it is a member of the Viticella Group, in which several cultivars have larger flowers.

I still cannot accept that even Lidl would sell HFYoung as a ' Summer Flowering Clematis '

HFYoung flower size 10 - 22 cms.

Do you know which varieties of clematis you have ?  If they are summer flowering, Group 3, and you did not chop them back to the floor in Spring then they will look like that,

Also it sounds as if they are too dry, definitely not clematis wilt.

Which clematis is it ?  If some of the bottom leaves are going brown and crispy then falling off, it is not a big problem.
