Growing Clematis Successfully

by Marcus Dancer

Marcus Dancer is passionate about growing his own plants and enjoys propagating and producing his own stock where possible. He has been growing and producing clematis plants for 30 years.

His talk in April described the distinctive types of clematis, their flowering period, preferred soil and conditions, planting depths, feeding and pruning. Large photographs of individual flowers demonstrated the huge range of form and colour available throughout the seasons, a number of which are heavily scented.
