How shaded should clematis roots be?

Posted: 29/08/2013 at 16:32

I used to put flat stones in front of my clematis, until one day I touched a stone and found it to be glowing hot, heating the soil underneath as well! Since then I have planted something in front for shade or put a large piece of bark down.

Definitely looks like a bamboo, get rid of it quick, or you'll have it everywhere. Has the neighbour got bamboo? Could have spread from there.

If it was me, I'd give it a try, what have you got to loose? But instead of using distilled water, why not try and collect rainwater? Also, are there any insects around that could pollinate the flowers, such as bees, moths?

The most important thing is to make sure that they are completely ripe, when they will have a dull beige/greyish colour and the vine is going yellow and dry. Do not let them get catch any frost, cover them with newspaper or similar if frosts are due and they are not quite ripe. Leave about an inch of stem when cutting off the vine.

I have never done anything apart from wiping any soil off with a damp cloth and then letting them dry completely. I still have one from last year that is still fine, will have to use it soon though!

Don't know what it is, but I'd like one!
