Cultivation Advice.

Large flowered clematis prefer a good quality soil with high nutrient levels and a soil which is moist but free-draining. Improve planting holes with at least 2 forkfuls of well rotted manure or garden compost and if you don't have these use a 'Soil Improver' compost. The Improvement material added should be placed under the root of the plant not around it. This encourages the roots to grow downwards and remain deep and cool during summer. If your clematis flowers in May-June(late spring), cut the dead flower heads when they have finished to encourage a second set of flowers to be produced in the late summer and autumn. Be prepared to wait for a couple of years before they will be at their best - Our saying is - 1st year = Roots, 2nd year = Shoots, 3rd year = Flowers!

Great for shade

I have had this for many years and when I moved to my new house I could not dig it up because it was in full flower and far to big!

I thought it would take years to establish another as good but was delighted when recommended by my new neighbour to use Thorncroft for clematis and have received an established plant, in flower with strong roots and 8 stems already!

The one I had before came from Morrisons and took 3 years to look like the one I got out of the Thorncroft box!

Great work. Keep it up I will deff order again.
