As we recommend with all plants, it is key to regularly water newly planted plants in the months after planting. Key with clematis, however, is to apply mulch to protect the delicate roots from drying out.

Clematis plants are extremely versatile and can even be grown as part of hedge, up a tree or as a ground cover plant.

When planting, dig a hole twice the circumference of the pot. Ensure the pot sits roughly level with the soil, with the graft point above the soil. Infill, the remaining space with a mix of compost and garden soil, but do not compress the soil.

Clematis will need sufficient space to grow or can become a tangled mess. Groups 1-3 require a trellis to scramble up.

In terms of care, watering is important especially during the summer months. They will need a thorough watering twice weekly during dry spells.

Pruning requirements depend on the clematis group. A detailed guide can be found here.

Your clematis will be sent directly from the grower, in the heart of England, to your doorstep. This approach means that you get a nursery fresh plant which was on the growing table one day and at your door the next. Our expert climber nursery has spent decades perfecting the art of watering feeding and pruning climbers and will do so until hours before it is packed. We see this as a real advantage over garden centres, were plants can be left unattended for weeks on end, or even other mail order companies that despatch from fulfillment sites.

This plant is grown on a cane and expertly packaged into a specially designed, extra thick cardboard box, which holds the plant in place, and sent through a delicate courier network to prevent any chance of damage in transit.

Clematis are easy to grow. Below we address some common queries:

  • Position: Clematis prefer full sun but will suffice in partial shade. Evergreen varieties need shelter and herbaceous varieties sunny spots.
  • Soil Types: soil types are best ignored and remain an unwelcome confusion. Every plant will adapt to its conditions. Simply, avoid waterlogged soils and apply mulch to improve aeration.
  • Planting In Pots: choose a pot around 50cm deep and be sure to apply mulch. Ensure regular watering in the warmer months.
  • Hardiness: clematis can be found growing throughout temperate regions, and are well suited to the UK climate.
