Cultivation Advice
Included in this group are those clematis commonly thought of as Viticella's, or viticella crosses. However we have taken the liberty to include some other cultivars in this group because their growth, habit and appearance is identical to that of the Viticella's. They include the likes of 'Blekitny Aniol''Polish Spirit' and 'Prince Charles'  because of their similarities, and for ease of selection, we feel justified in placing them within this group.
They are all extremely hardy, very free flowering, their pruning is simple and they cannot be recommended highly enough. Especially useful for people new to growing clematis as they are extremely tolerant of what the gardener does to them! They all make excellent companions to grow with roses.

These clematis prefer a good quality soil with high nutrient levels and a soil which is moist but free-draining. Improve planting holes with at least 2 forkfuls of well rotted manure or garden compost and if you don't have these use a 'Soil Improver' compost. The improvement material added should be placed under the root of the plant not around it. This encourages the roots to grow downwards and remain deep and cool during summer.There is no need to deadhead these clematis, however if they appear to have finished flowering earlier than you expected, there is no harm in giving them a light trim to encourage new growth and a secondary flowering late in the autumn.

Great clematis, great supplier, exceptional value.

This clematis is exactly what I wanted for a shady spot and I am delighted with it. Thorncroft delivered it beautifully packed during the coronavirus lockdown. I was reorganising my garden this spring and 'Blue Angel' quickly established itself despite being in competition with the old rambler rose it was tasked to climb. In just a couple of months it grew about a metre and now in mid-July it has many flowers brightening up a gloomy spot as the rose has finished flowering. Great clematis, great supplier, exceptional value. Many thanks.

Superb

I have a very shady garden and Google brought me straight to this website when I asked for clematis for shade.

Bought 3 from a RHS show, got no help and they all died.

Called here and Carol was excellent telling me exactly what I needed to know and more!

Super service, super delivery and super plants.

All have flowered in the first year.

Fantastic Plant

This is one of the most beautiful clematis I have in my garden on the pergola. It was delivered and planted April 2019. It was exceptionally well packed and a very healthy. It came with detailed planting instructions, which I followed to the letter. It is now almost 6 foot tall, almost to the top of pergola and has been covered from head to foot in the most glorious blooms since the end of May. I thoroughly recommend this plant and this grower. Buy with confidence and enjoy the experience, as I have.

Absolutely Wonderful

This clematis is in its first year in my garden and its clothed a shaded north facing fence with beautiful blooms for weeks on end.

Its really pretty with frilled flowers, some double, and I highly recommend it.
