Homeowner Growing Tips: Clematis thrive in well-drained, slightly alkaline soil. The ideal situation allows their roots and the base of the plant to be shaded while the top growth is in the sun. Mulch the base to conserve moisture. Water deeply and regularly during the first season to establish the roots, and keep evenly moist with slightly less frequent watering in following seasons. Feed regularly starting in the spring. Deadheading can enhance the bloom time. Prune in early spring, lightly shaping and removing dead or weak stems.
