What shall I do with my Snow Queen Clematis

Can you help? I’ve had my Snow Queen Clematis for 4 years and this year I’ve had 10 flowers and this is the most I’ve had. I feed and water it and now it looks dead at the bottom???? What shall I do with it?

    It looks as though you still have some live growth. I would trace the dead stems back to the base and cut them out. Hopefully your plant will survive.

    It could be struggling in that pot. If you can get it in something bigger, that will help.
    There could be some damage lower down to a stem, causing foliage to die back too, so it's worth taking a look. Some foliage damage is normal though.

    Do you rejuvenate the soil in it every year?

    Anything in a pot is more reliant on you for it's health, and plants use up all the nutrients in a container quite quickly.  :)
    If you can remove a good layer from the top every spring, and refresh it, that will help. Compost on it's own isn't enough either, for plants in pots long term. If you can use a soil based compost, that will help too, as it holds onto water better.   :)
