Sowing, Seeds, Planting Good drainage is essential. Add plenty of coarse grit to a large planting hole to avoid waterlogging during winter. As with all clematis, roots should be shielded from the midday sun, by means of a low wall, stones or a ground-cover plant. This will keep the roots cool and moist in summer.
