Cultivation Advice.

These 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.There is no need to deadhead these clematis, however if they appear to have finished flowering earlier than you expected, there is no harm in giving them a light trim to encourage new growth and a secondary flowering late in the autumn.

Chelsea at home

I saw this growing on the chelsea exhibit and bought it with the other three it was growing with. They looked so stunning and I said they can never look this good in my garden! But the lady said "yes and here is how you do it". Now I have the most flowers in my garden in many months.

Fabulous flowers, just like velvet. Reliable, easy, and absolutely stunning.

Seems quite happy in our sandy soil.
