Pot up clematis plants and grow them on until large enough to plant in their final positions. When planting clematis, choose a position in sun or semi-shade and plant the climber deeply in moist, fertile, well drained soil. Position the top of the rootball at a depth of 7.5cm (3") below soil level, to encourage new shoots to form from the base of the plant. Clematis dislike soils that are particularly wet or dry. Such soils can be improved by the addition of plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost. When growing clematis in patio containers use a soil based compost such as John Innes No.3. Train clematis plants onto a suitable support such as trellis, wires or a freestanding climbing frame.
Feed and water frequently throughout the growing season. This variety of clematis flowers in early spring on the previous year's growth. Pruning should be undertaken in summer, after flowering. When pruning Clematis 'Winter Beauty', remove any damaged or dead stems entirely before cutting back the remaining stems to a pair of healthy buds to maintain the plant within its allotted space. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant in order to protect the roots and conserve soil moisture.

First ones didn't survive, replacements are tiny plugs inserted into 7cm pots!
By Colin Colin 09-07-2016
The first ones we ordered were due in summer 2015 but despatch was delayed. They arrived in Autumn, as quite bushy but small plants, but due to late arrival did not grow on enough to survive winter.
We were offered replacements that have only just arrived (in mid-July) but these are pitiful 2cm wide and tall plug-sized plants with 2-3 tiny leaves on each plant, that seem to have been potted into 7cm pots just before despatch.
Thank you for your review. I am sorry to learn of your disappointment with your purchase. If you would like to contact our Customer Care Department at firstname.lastname@example.org, one of our agents will be more than happy to look in to this further for you.
Patience is a Virtue

Ours lives in a large soil-filled pot wrapped in cloth to protect it from the frost. Grew to about 8 foot tall but took about two years before it flowered. At present lots of ¼in long white buds: expect flowers. Last year flowered from mid-December almost to Spring. I see somebody has had a plant die. Is that clematis wilt?
