Young Clematis Armandii. Novice Gardener. Help Needed.
After 12 months of hard work I have wrestled a very overgrown and unloved garden into something I can enjoy.
To celebrate I treated myself to 4 Clematis Armandii 'Snowdrift.
I dug 4 holes (twice the depth of the pots) against the south facing fence (which I have equipped with wire) and filled it with a mix of bagged soil and bagged compost.
I planted the Clematis and carefully attached the tendrils (using ties in figures of 8) of to a fan of bamboo canes. I watered each one with 10 litres of water with some Miracle-Gro mixed in and this is where I am now.
I read that Clematis require lots of water in the first 12 months but I have also read that they can be over watered.
I am confused an would like any help you can give me in terms of pointers on how much to water them and how often.
Sounds obvious but I really want these to thrive and grow. It has been a long journey to get to this point.
I am attaching pictures of the garden 12 months ago and some pictures of how I have set up the Clematis.
Any help/comments would be very appreciated
