i have planted a clematis ( piilu) i left it. and it was flourishing with green leaves and an abundance of buds with 1 actual beautiful flower. i watered it. then i didn't get back for 2 days it was very hot and 3/4 of it had wilted and died.
it is typical london soil-chalky. i dug it out put multi-purpose compost down with horse manure and bonemeal. i put bug spray on it maybe 3-4 times, as the leaves at one point looked a bit white powdery and there was green fly on it. after that it was flourishing. i planted it about 2 months ago and have been watering it regularly. please help i don't want it to die, maybe i didn't tie it up properly.?
