Clematis Plants for Sale

The Best Clematis Varieties

Clematis has to be the largest group of climbing plants grown in the UK, with a vast number of varieties of all colours, sizes, habit and flowering times. In a large garden, there can be a clematis in flower 10 months of the year and there is a clematis for every space; some large-flowered varieties will grow happily in a planter.

Clematis associate well with climbing roses, and will scramble into large shrubs. The Montanas will quickly cover a wall or shed giving a spectacular display in spring. Most have very delicate or no scent, but they more than make up for this with spectacular floral displays. All of our Clematis are grown here in the UK and, because they are container grown, are available for you to buy and plant at any time of the year. You can also see the rest of our range of climbing plants here.

Clematis are categorised into three groups for pruning:

  1. After the first year's flowering only, prune to 30cm. After that, no special pruning is required, except to tidy and remove old stems that have become messy, damaged or unproductive: do this immediately after flowering. Do not hard prune if possible.
  2. Trim lightly in February, removing weak stems and then the tips of the rest, down to the highest, best looking buds. After the first flush of flowers each year, cut all the stems down by about half, above a pair of buds. Otherwise, do not hard prune if possible.
  3. Chop every stem down to about 60cm in February.
