Look out for:

'Marie Boisselot' is tough, hardy Clematis. However, they may be affected by caterpillars, earwigs and aphids. Hand pick where possible, spray if infestations get too bad.

May be susceptible to Clematis wilt. Avoid through mulching for healthy roots. Remove any infected growth and destroy it. Disinfect your tools.

Slime flux may occasionally be a problem. Damaged stems can be infected by the bacteria causing a foul smelling ooze from the wound. Cut back affected stems to a healthy shoot, the infected material should be destroyed. Disinfect your tools.
