Thompson and Morgan Clematis Plugs

An offer for free clematis from Thompson and Morgan was recently posted in the Gardening group I joined on Facebook.

In my garden one side has a long white rendered wall which is very boring to look at, so I have been looking for some nice climbing plants to grow up it. The offer was for three free Clematis plants all you had to pay was £4.95 for postage, so I ordered them to add to my growing collection. This included three varieties Pilu, John Huxtable and Multi Blue.

These arrived yesterday so I took them round to my sisters to get them planted up.

They are good size plugs. So I decided to use my new found favourite alternative to pots – poly bags.

I found this wooden diber helpful to make hole just the right size to drop my clematis plugs into (its also great for bulbs).

Once I had planted all three I watered them in well to settle their roots. These even came with a free packet of clematis fertiliser help encourage them to grow into big climbers so they can cover the wall and add splashes of colour.
