A new home for the Clematis

by Nathaniel W. Turner last modified Jan 01, 2011 11:47 PM
Earlier this spring, Mel and I bought a Clematis (a type of perennial flowering vine). A month or two later, it was high time to repot it.
A new home for the Clematis

The newly repotted Clematis sits on the east side of our house, right next to the door.

Our Clematis had outgrown its pot, and more urgently, outgrown the small trellis with which it came.  A couple weeks of procrastination and one trip to the garden store later, we have what you see in the photo.  Hopefully this will give the thing enough room to climb for a little while longer.

The Clematis is an interesting genus of plant, with flowers of all sorts of shapes and sizes.  I don't know what the flowers on ours will look like yet.  Stay tuned!
