Delivery season: Clematis are delivered in pots year round, when in stock. It is usually best not to plant out pot grown plants in winter, but to keep them until Spring, because they will establish faster in warm soil and give you better first year growth.
Choosing a size: Small plants are cheaper and more forgiving of less than ideal aftercare, so they are best for a big planting project. If instant impact is your priority, or if you are only buying a few plants for ornamental use in a place where it is convenient to water them well in their first year, then you may as well use bigger ones. All our climbing plants come in standard pot sizes.

Planting and Care Instructions

How to Grow Clematis montana Warwickshire Rose:

  • Give it a deep, moist spot to bury its roots into.
  • The soil needs to be a well-drained (it won't tolerate waterlogging).
  • The climber needs a supporting structure - the plant will become heavy if left unpruned.
  • Final height of 7m makes it well suited to scrambling through large trees, or covering large walls/fences.
  • Pruning group 1 - no regular pruning required. If you want to reduce their size, prune immediately after flowering.
  • All clematis like a mulch of well-rotted manure or garden compost in late spring.

Look out for: Aphids and caterpillars are fond of the young shoots
