Clematis virus? - I have found that I have a virus on 2 of my clematis - it may be Cucumber mosaic virus from what I've read - I had it on one clematis last year but hadn't realised what it was so consequently didn't do anything about it. It is on the same one + another - the original one didn't flourish last year or this though has flowers. The other one is growing fine & has flowers - I didn't notice that it had it last year but it may have as they are growing next to each other. I've read that the affected plants should be destroyed - is that the only way to stop infection of others - will it still be in the soil? I haven't noticed any infestation of aphids which I know can carry it. Any advice welcomed - thanks.
