New Clematis Armandii
Hi, I planted a clematis armandii in Autumn in a South facing garden 12 inches from a wall with small shrubs planted around base. The clematis was in leaf but quickly lost all these. It is showing no sign of buds. The soil is clay based. I dug a hole about 18-24 inches deep and similar in width and filled with compost and sprinkled with blood,fish & bone. Perhaps it is concentrating on its root system but i thought i would have seen a bit of life above the surface?
