Presumably the OP, Joy, didn't know what was happening with her clemmie.
Therefore she posted her question. She didn't know that there wasn't a problem. She was hoping for advice, I assume.
Now, maybe, she is able to see that there isn't a problem. Not everyone who plants clematis knows everything there is to know about them. Why should they? Don't answer that.
Joy....relax.....apparently your clemmie is just having an 'autumn' moment!
See original post
I can assure you that no-one who plants clematis knows everything there is to know about them, we are all learning, and the best way to learn is to ask questions as Joy rightly did.
