When How In Out
I'm new to this site and to gardening, My apologies if this question has been asked before, i did try look.. I recently bought a few young Clematis plants various types they range in height from 12" to 36" they are all in small pots and very green ie not ripe or wodden stemed, they are of various pruning groups and species, my question/s are should i pot them on and put them in my poly tunnel? pot them on and put them outside in a sunny sheltered area? or plant them straight in the ground? i know some answers will depend on particular species and pruning groups i do have a few early flowering Montanas & a few C Viticellas, my gut feeling is to pot them on keep them out during decent weather bring them in before winter and frost, but should i prune them right down when i pot them on? I hope these questions make sense..
Thanx in advance
