Clematis in pots -- what now?


I purchased 2 beautiful clematis in June. Kept them in large pots because of the drought. Now I wonder if I should plant them in the ground, keep them in pots inside over winter, or dig a hole in one of my raised garden beds and put them in (with pot) for the winter and plant in the spring. These are pruning #3 Clematis if that makes a difference. Appreciate your advice? Thanks - Gwen -

    Gwen Go ahead and plant them now. Water them well, mulch them and then be sure to water them through the winter. About an inch per month.
