Clematis cutting by layering

Bunny ...Bunny ... Posts: 3,471
Long time no see. Site set up rather different to get around. 

Has anyone had success doing laying cuttings of clematis? Been reading a few articles.
I'm going to try standard methods but I've never succeeded yet hence the laying thought .

Also has anyone used honey or apple cider vinegar as rooting compound element?

Many thanks . Hope all are well.

    Hello Bunny, 7 years ago! How have you been?
    I have tried layering but gave up as it didn’t work, probably didn’t do it correctly, but may have been the deer. It was years ago before I realised that deer nibble clematis.

    Sorry not to have been helpful but my post will push this back to the top.
    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.

    Not bad here.  How are you   ?

    Well I've had a go at some cuttings today. Trying 3 different clematis. Abeliene ?sp picardy and durandii
    Durandii was struggling in the cold wet , only ever got a few flowers so trying layering and one in water. 
    OH said throw it away and get a new one . But i feel I'm letting the plant down if I don't try.
