I have a Clematis, grows to 2m) in a pot where it is very sad. First year it was given to me, as a bare root plant, it grew well and had a few flowers, last December one lone flower…now has two leaves and I wish to plant it straight into the ground, is now a good time? And should I give the plant anything special in the way of feed etc. I did mulch around the base with pea straw to keep the roots cool. Hope I can save this poor neglected plant.

If you wish to put your clematis into the ground do so in Autumn, when it is cooler. In late winter/early spring simply prune the stems of the plant to within 20-30cm of soil level. Use a strong cane to lead shoots to climbing support. Support can be a tree-trunk or wall, pergola, arbor etc. Plant in free-draining, soil with a mix of mushroom compost. Add a slow release fertilizer, also add some Gypsum (calcium sulphate). Boost when growing with Nitrophoska Blue. They like their roots kept cool.
