Clematis ‘Elizabeth’ (clematis (group 1)) was £12.99 now £9.99
Position: full sun or partial shade Soil: fertile, well-drained, neutral soil Rate of growth: fast-growing Flowering period: May to June Flower colour: soft pink Other features: N/A Hardiness: fully hardy Sweetly scented, large, soft pink flowers with golden-yellow centres in May and June and purple-flushed, mid-green leaves. This fast-growing clematis is excellent for training over a pergola or covering an unsightly wall or fence in a north-facing site. Plant near an entrance or path where the delicate almond fragrance can be appreciated. Garden care: No routine pruning is necessary. If the spread of the climber needs to be restricted prune immediately after flowering, cutting back overlong shoots to healthy buds. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.

Clematis armandii (clematis (group 1))

Clematis armandii (clematis (group 1)) was £16.99 now £14.99
Position: full sun Soil: fertile, well drained Rate of growth: fast-growing Flowering period: early spring Hardiness: Frost hardy (needs winter protection in cold areas) Pruning: Group 1 A fantastic, evergreen, twining climber, with handsome, long, lance-shaped leaves that will cloak a wall or fence within a few seasons. In early spring, it’s smothered in fragrant, four-petalled, star-shaped white flowers and the new leaves are bronze-tinted. Plant near a doorway to enjoy the scent, and give it plenty of room to spread out. Garden care: Clematis armandii prefers its roots to be in cool, moist, well-drained soil, so plant deeply in a shady spot and water well. Mulch around the roots each spring with well-rotted garden compost or manure. This clematis does not like cold winds, so choose a sheltered spot in the garden. This plant is toxic to dogs if eaten.
