    What to do with Clematis

    My back porch is practically a greenhouse so will keep in there til cold passes. Will stick it out in my border after about a week. From what i can read, they aren't too fussy about the type of soil?

    Sal, Wustaba's plants are a lot more than £2.50! But a lot of them are very rare in cultivation and you can't get them anywhere else.
