Caring and Maintenance

As there are such a wide range of Clematis plants different types have specifics needs. However, all growing Clematis vines need to be supported to enable it to climb and they all need to be pruned once a year in early spring. For more details click here.


Clematis plants can be grown in 2-3 litre containers and also planted in the garden. The Clematis is best bought when it is at least 2 years old and the roots need to be well developed before planting. The Clematis prefers to grow in sunny locations but will also thrive in partial shade. The roots need to be kept cool and shaded and the soil should be moist and well drained with plenty of space for adequate air flow.


There are many different varieties of Clematis and they are classified into three groups depending on their blooming time and characteristics. Group 1 features spring bloomers, Group 2 are repeat bloomers, and Group 3 are summer or fall bloomers.
