Problems with Clematis...
Having recently sorted my problems with Clematis Corona, I would now like you to kindly look at these two further clematis plants, purchased at the same time, two years ago.
Images 1 and 2:
The first is Jackmanii superba. It is planted on an east facing fence, feet very definitely in the shade, head...such as it is...in the dappled shade of a tree.As you can see from the two images, it has done very little in two years. It's thin and straggly, despite feeding and pruning in Spring. Its foliage is poor...flowers nil!
Images 3 and 4:
The second plant is Ernest Markham, good green foliage...but NO flowers...ever! it looks as though it will flower...and then NOTHING! Both should be in flower now. This has been planted in an obelisk container, fed, watered and its head in full sun on a patio.
