Aaaaw, that's a great shame BL
P.S I'd actually send you mine if I could. I'm not a huge lover of the brightly coloured clematis. When I got the Dr R it was in a deal, buy arch and get two celmatis free.
Mrs Bateman was first choice...but then OH wanted variety and that was really all they had left.
I lost a The President a few years back, I have an unflowering mystery one that's been nursed back to health, the usual jackmanii and Armandii versions and a beautiful nodding Alpina I bought last year. The star of my Clematis show is Josephine that survived a move earlier this year and a Pope John Paul II that's recovering from an accident that ruined last year's growth.
So, plenty room for more Clematis, I'm just a bit fussy as to colours.
