CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

Plant with the crown of the plant 5-8cm deep to encourage new shoots to grow from below ground level. Clematis prefer to have their roots cool, so try and plant so that the roots are shaded. If you are planting in a sunny position, place some pieces of slate or flat stones on the soil after planting or use groundcover plants to keep the roots out of the heat.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Clematis 'Freckles':

  • If planting by a wall or fence - the hole should be dug approx. 12in (30cm) away from its base.
  • If planting by a tree - plant about 2 feet (60cm) away from the trunk leaning the cane of the clematis towards the support.
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once the clematis is in place.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots and sprinkle with Mycorrhizal fungi to help plants establish quicker.
  • Plant with the crown of the plant 5-8cm deep to encourage new shoots to grow from below ground level.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling) and firm in the soil, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well

 

Aftercare Advice for Clematis 'Freckles':

  • Feed in spring with a general-purpose feed, avoiding the stems. Mulch immediately afterwards with organic matter such as well-rotted manure, lea mould or garden compost.
  • Water regularly during periods of dry weather in the first few seasons after planting, especially for container plants.
  • Clematis in pots should be given a liquid feed through the summer and early autumn.

 

Pruning Advice for Clematis cirrhosa:

  • No regular pruning is required, just remove any dead, damaged or diseases stems before cutting back to a pair of buds to maintain shape. Prune immediately after flowering in mid- to late spring when the danger of frost has passed.
