Each species of this climbing plant needs different conditions, so before you buy one you need to decide where you want to place it. However, as mentioned above, this is a fairly hardy plant, so it won’t give you much of a problem.

Another tip is to buy a climbing plant that is already two years old and, when choosing, make sure that the roots are in a sufficiently large container.

Each type of clematis requires a different size. For example, evergreen, Alpina or Montana clematis prefer a very light pruning; other species, such as Viticella, Tabgutica or Texensis, require very drastic pruning.

Clematis: cultivation in the ground

Dig a hole at least 50cm deep and 40cm wide.

If you want him to climb a wall, consider digging a hole as far from the wall as possible. Put mature manure and loose soil in the bottom. All you have to do is insert the climbing plant into the hole, tilting it towards the wall of the house and putting at least two or three knots in the ground.

Another important tip is to bury a seedling at the foot of the clematis to give the roots the shade they need.
