Growing Calendar for Clematis Amethyst Beauty 3x 7cm pot
Delivery: Early April to Late July
Flowering from a young plant in early spring when its only 18in (45cm) from the soil its purple flowers keep appearing all the way to the top of its 6ft (1.8m) height in late summer giving you a generous 4-month flowering period of beautiful blooms each and every year.
Superb for the centrepiece of containers for fountains of flowers and superb for scrambling through roses, shrubs or small trees with its flowers peeping out through the foliage.
We recommend you plant in beds next to walls to cover them with beautiful flower. You can expect to fit 5 plants along the side of a shed or garage which is 6 ½ ft (2m) long, spaced every 16in (40cm).
Each spring simply cut all stems down to 6in (15cm) above soil level and place some well-rotted compost around the stump. This keeps your clematis plant tidy, free-flowering and healthy.
How your plants arrive
Your plants arrive to you as young plants containing a ‘plug’ of soil with roots running through it and some small green stems and leaves.
The stems are cut back short purposely as we know this encourages lots of flowering stems to emerge so you get more flower power for your plants. Although they are little plants they are the perfect size to get growing fast once you plant them up.
Your 3 flower plants will arrive to you in 7cm pot with a polythene bag covering the root zone. This are all contained in a plastic pack for double-protection (which acts as a mini-greenhouse) to create a good humid atmosphere for your young plants to thrive and get a really good start to produce you lovely flowers.
Your container comes in a box for extra protection when leaving our nursery to arriving at your home.
Check your plants are in the plastic container, with healthy young leaves.
Can’t plant straight away?
If you cannot plant up your perennial flower plants straight away into their permanent position make sure the plugs of your plants are kept moist at all times.
You can place your plant on a saucer or tray of water so the plug is immersed at the beginning of the day. Keep an eye on it and take it out of the water once the soil is moist from absorbing the water beneath.
Keep your plant in a well-ventilated and light position in its plastic container after giving it water. Look to planting in their permanent position within 5-7 days.
There’s a climber for every outdoor space, whether it’s a large garden or a balcony. Some are more suited to large spaces like trumpet vines or established wisterias, whereas other are more delicate like some of the ornamental beans and morning glories.
