Easy flowering plant for a warm spot in the garden

Most varieties of the Clematis flower in spring or summer with countless colourful blossoms. In winter, some evergreen varieties provide a green decoration in the garden. Clematis are easy to grow and also fit well on the terrace or balcony. The woody shoots look for support themselves, wrapping easily around anything that can be used as a climbing aid in their environment. Thus, clematis climbs effortlessly up or along a scaffold or pergola. The flowers are strikingly pretty and range from small, delicate, white-pink flowers to huge flowers more than 20cm wide. There is also a great choice of colours: from very soft rosa to pink, lilac and purple, to blue and violet. The flowers vary from timeless simplicity (four petals around a yellow heart) to double varieties in different colours.


Choose a place where the Clematis can lean and grow upwards, e.g. on a pergola, scaffolding or screen wall.

The foliage and flowers can be in full sun, but the roots of the clematis like it cool. Plant a few shady ground covers in front of the climber and cover the base of the plant with stones.

The clematis prefers a constantly moist soil. Water the plant regularly, especially during the first four weeks after planting.

Provide slow-release fertiliser during the growing season from March to May so that the plant can grow well during the gardening season.  Do not apply additional fertiliser during the flowering period.

Pruning of clematis is generally after the flowering period (check for each variety when the ideal time is).

    Your climber knows how to find its way naturally. If you lend a hand with guiding the plants in growing up, your plant will certainly appreciate this. By guiding your climber you can control the growth yourself, which means that maintenance takes even less time. To make guiding our climbers easier, we have developed a do-it-yourself climbing support. You can use this climbing support with all UP!Climbers within the perfect garden range. You can see how you can easily install this in the following steps:

    1. The climbing support is supplied with screws, nails and coupling pieces. Very handy!
    2. Take the clear connectors and place them on the rack of the climber you just placed.
    3. Slide the climbing support into the coupling pieces.
    4. Take the screws and nails from your package. We add both so that you can choose what to attach your rack with.
    5. Nail or screw through the rack to get it straight and tight against your wall or fence.
    6. Add the Pokon plant food according to the manual and give your newly planted climbers something to drink. The food ensures that the climbing plants will grow well. This also makes your plants strong and healthy.
