Clematis. Planting and care.
Care for clematisin the first place is fertilizing and watering. But first, to planting flowers you need to prepare the place. They love slightly acidic and neutral soils.
Depending on ground condition, you will need to apply fertilizers or mineral or organic.
Then prepare a hole 40h40h10sm, and put the sapling and then covered with soil. Planting clematis to a depth of 10cm will keep the roots from frost, and the area of 40×40, allowed to solidify and a well-developed root system.
Deeper planting may result in slower growth or death of the plant.
Periodically, you need to pay attention to shoots, they can not manage to gain a foothold on supports, in this case, you need to help them in this matter( to tie).
Clematis like moist and loose soil, but they do not tolerate damp. Need to water the area around the flowers, not the root, otherwise they can rot.
Plants that grow for more than one season can be watered less frequently, but with plenty of water. As for feeding, 2 times a season would be enough.
For the first time in spring, nitrogen fertilizers, and in the winter phosphorus-potassium.
With good care clematis endures the winter, but it would be better if you hid the plant.
Cut the withered vine (20cm from ground), then backfill with peat and cover with top wooden box, and on top of hollow foliage.
