Under the maple tree, I transplanted Clematis-Propagating Clematis by cuttings

未分類

The clematis I’ve been trying to propagate by cuttings seems to have taken root, so I’ve transplanted them.

Clematis is a very vigorous plant, so it is relatively easy to propagate by cuttings. I took the cutting of clematis in the middle of June and stuck them into mixed soil with compost and perlite.

It was the first time for me to try it and I just put the cut stems in the soil and left them there. Most of them started to grow new shoots and only 2 or 3 of the ten cuttings didn’t work. They must have taken root, so I decided to plant them.

Where we live, we have a risk of frost at any time in September. So I wanted to plant them about a month before the first frost to give them enough time to establish their roots. The timing was perfect.

I planted them under the maple tree. I added vermiculite to the spot to increase their water retention. Ideally, I would like the clematis to grow their vine on the trunk of the maple tree. I am looking forward to next spring.
