Clematis planting query
Hello, I hope you all can help me. I want to plant a clematis in a bed to grow up a fence and trellis/arch. The trellis however is slightly adjacent to the bed I will plant the clematis. Can I train the clematis to grow about a foot and then grow up the trellis? Or do I just have to plant a different climber into a pot at the trellis. Any advice would be appreciated. I have attached a photo to show you what I mean. The bed is behind the low fence and so the clematis would have to go through the gaps. I hope this makes sense!
