What Is Supplied
Item 550322 supplied as:
1 x 9cm Pot
Plant with the crown of the plant 5-8cm deep to encourage new shoots to grow from below ground level.
Clematis like a cool 'root run' 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 cool.
- If planting by a wall or fence - the hole should be dug approx. 30cm (12in) away from its base.
- If planting by a tree - plant about 60cm (2ft) 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.
- Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting 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).
- Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball
