When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, peonies, philadelphus...

Do you remember, this is the one that was in a different pot and when I went to move it the bottom fell out 😱🤣 Still, it seems to have recovered! @pelly

I remember the incident but not the plant. I've just swiped back and it really has made a spectacular recovery 💚

Thanks Sarah. I knew it had the potential to be fab but just wasn’t sure it would do it in my garden 😜😊 @sieveheadsarah

30 Apr 2019 • Amazed and thrilled that this is now flowering given its very shaky start to life, though also a bit surprised as I thought it would flower in early spring 💚

I am so pleased that it is not only alive but has finally flowered too. The bottom fell out of its first pot as I moved it, then the window cleaner reversed into its second one, then I stood on it as I was repotting it for the third time... 🙄🙄🙄 @rachelbrooks

Wow, Joe. You're looking good for all you've been through! 🤣 last summer the roofers did quite a bit of boot trimming in one whole area Jacqueline. I think all survived, but some are kind of ugly now. Time will tell. Joe can be their inspiration! 🌸💝

15 Oct 18 • Third time lucky. Bottom fell out of its first pot then the window cleaner reversed into its second pot... I hope I’ve added enough drainage that it will survive outside, but odds are against it given it’s history 🙄😂

Very similar leaf to my ‘avalanche’ which is very vigorous so fingers crossed.

It didn’t help that I seem to have stooden on a bit that was trailing when I repotted it. Poor plant. How many lives do clematis have? 🤔😂 @valjones-hughes

4 February 2018 • I don’t know whether I will get away with this but when I went to move my pot the bottom was no longer attached! I’ve left the Clematis in the (now bottomless) pot and moved it onto some soil. Here’s hoping 🤞

No reason why it shouldn't be ok I don't think 👍 It's too nice to throw out Jacqueline ☺️

That’s what I thought too Sue. Only hope Clematis will survive... If it does it should look good there as it’s got the wisteria to climb up 🤞🤞 @susanhumphrey333

No I haven't Jacqueline. Never got around to it. I would love to replace my climbing Hydrangea with one, as it doesn't flower very well now ☺️ Are they slow growing and only flower after several years 🤔as I'm very impatient 😂

They seem to vary in how vigorous they are Sue but if you get one in flower or with signs of having flowered, you should be fine. I think the alba might be my favourite as the new leaves are lovely too 🤔😊 @susanhumphrey333

Taylor's Clematis, who I got it from, said it can look great tumbling out of an old chimney pot and this is a similar shape. Just hope it isn't too cold & wet for it... @Keely

I think it'll be just fine in there - I have Pixie (quite similar) in a (much shallower) pot and it's going great guns! 👍🏼💚

I'm with @euphorbia - I couldn't get past that seat either. Next year will probably be a different story, when that clematis really gets going! Can't wait to see progress pictures!

I've seen them in wet Yorkshire so fingers crossed for you put 4" of mulch over top of pot to protect roots from wet winter I have done that with mine on back patio that's in permanent shade over winter n just hoping they will survive if it gets too frosty going to wrap pot in bubble wrap n fleece 😆
