The Raymond Evison ‘Boulevard’ range are the ideal clematis for containers. Flowering continuously from May to September they are much more compact than other varieties.
6 Steps to success
Select your ideal pot (40-60cm is ideal) and an obelisk or cane trellis.
Choose your Clematis plants, the more plants you use the quicker the end result.
Select a good quality multi-purpose compost and pot-up. Weave the new growth in and out of the support. Repeat this as the plants grow.
Clematis are hungry! Feed regularly with a good quality tomato food from April through to August to ensure lots of flowers.
Remove old flowers when they fade to encourage more flowers to grow.
In January remove the support, gather all the stems together in a ‘pony tail’ leaving about 25cm above the ground and cut. It’s that simple!
