Cultivation Advice
I would recommend growing florida clematis in large pots because they perform very well and they make a stunning display on a patio. Stand the container on the patio from late February to early October and then move it into a sheltered corner or cold glasshouse to over-winter. They will not need heated conditions during the winter, just shelter and if taking them undercover they will probably continue flowering.

In early March the previous seasons growth should be hard pruned down to approximately one foot (30cm) from the soil level and a fresh top-dressing of compost and bonemeal can be applied to the container. Use Westland Gro-Sure Slow Release Plant Food for consistent feeding through the year. 

Avoid keeping the floridas too wet over the winter, on the other hand they must not be allowed to dry out completely. Always ensure the pot drains freely and each year harden the plants off during late March as described in the Planting & Care Guide

When planting florida clematis in the garden they will require the shelter of a south or south west facing wall, with good free draining soil. A sheet of bubble plastic or a double layer of garden fleece draped across and pegged into position will keep the worst of the winter weather at bay. This protection can be removed during early March so that hard pruning can be carried out, then feed with a single handful of bonemeal and water it in. Replace the protection until the worst of the weather has passed.

Good gift

Having bought one for myself I decided to get this a a gift to a friend who was having an operation. She loves violette and this was well named and the right colour so I couldn't go wrong really.

It came packed with a different plant for me and the packaging was just perfection, the best I have seen for a plant company, so the plants were in perfect condition when they arrived.

Needless to say my friend was delighted with the gift, just a shame it didn't have any flowers on.
