    Hi
    After reading through a number of posts I'm beginning to think that this is lack of water rather than disease or wilt. What do you think. Any guidence would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Sorry, can't answer your question. All I know about Clematis is they don't like their roots hot, I have broken crocks/stones covering the roots.

    Definitely needs its roots in the shade. Take care with gravel or slate, slugs love to lurk under them and nibble the Clematis shoots. I would also give the plant a really good watering, not just s sprinkle, but a soak.

    Not sure what we are looking for, the plant doesn't appear wilted in the pictures.
    Some leaves appear yellow and speckled.

    How long has it been planted?

    The first Clematis we got I put the roots in the shade. We then put two in planters and a fourth, which is the best of them all, with the roots in full sun! Maybe the Scottish sun is the same as being in the shade.
