Thank you Thrupennybit. The flowers are pretty, but the plant seems to be struggling, it's gone very brown at the bottom!

Have you got the roots in the shade with slate covering them roots in the shade flower head in the sun. You can feed them with Epsom salts for magnesium or get a clematis feed cut all brown off they are greedy feeders like lots of water.

Thank you for the advice. I did give them a thick mulch, but guess it's not enough. I'll have a go at covering the roots as you suggest and grow something in front of it to shade it more as well. Will look for some epsom salts, (an old fashioned remedy my parents believed in for soaking tired feet)!! :)

Your welcome there are other products you could use in spring sprinkle blood fish and bone and water it in which gives good flowers.

Be careful not to disturb the roots of the clematis if your planting close by. When planting clematis always plant deeper than from the pot and plant on a 45 degree angle.

Yes my parent too suprising how many old things are rememdies now like a small amount of baking powder with lemon made into a drink kills cancer I ve recently read.

Thanks for all the extra advice. I have always used the all rounder growmore, but will get some blood fish and bone, my father in law used to use that a lot, if I'm remembering correctly, it did pong a bit. :) As long as I don't have to spray with any nasty chemicals, I won't use them, for the sake of the beasties, bees and butterflies etc.
I have not read about the baking powder and lemon drink, interesting.

Your welcome Numbersfarn . My mum used it to blood fish and bone. Round up weed killer is the worse for killing bees butterflies etc. I find it interesting that our bread use to be made with baking powder not with yeast soda bread .
