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!

The President

My plant arrived today exactly according to delivery tracking. Nicely boxed up and travelled well. I thought the prices were a little expensive but wanted this particular one so ordered plants on line for the first time. The clematis looks strong and healthy so I won't mind paying a little extra if the President lives up to my expectations through the summer. I recommend buying more than one plant at a time to even out delivery charges.

The President clematis

Arrived in excellent condition. Well packed, and was kept informed throughout the delivery process. The carriers were also good, delivery at time stated. Plant in great condition and an extra bonus two beautiful flowers. Instructions also included from how to plant through to pruning. Many thanks would recommend you to anyone purchasing clematis.
