• Clematis Supporting Act

    30th March 2017In The GardenDaniel Carruthers

    It’s the perfect time to give the newly-emerging clematis some twiggy supports, allowing them to climb and scramble, rather the sprawl and collapse. I love the decorative nature of my various metal plant supports (they add structure to the winter garden) but I find that they are not sufficient on their own, even with companion roses, to support clematis so I add very twiggy silver birch branches to the central area and find this works a treat.
