I have planted a new clematis today next to an existing one and have unfortunately disturbed some of the existing ones roots, will it be ok?



Clematis are thugs, Marion, and it is very unlikely that you have hurt it.

Sorry to disagree, Bulbaholic, but I lost 'Miss Bateman' because I disturbed her roots. They don't like their roots upset.

Not much you can do about it now anyway - just wait and see if it regrows next year, even if it all disappears this year.
