Feed and lime clematis now?
I just read in a local nursery/garden center newsletter that the first of March and the first of June I should sprinkle 1 cup of agriculture lime and 1 cup of espoma flower tone fertilizer 1 foot from the base of my clematis. It also said I should prune it hard to a foot from the ground. I’m not sure why but this just doesn’t sound right to me. Are they correct? Should I run out and buy these products and do what they say?
(BTW: thanks for the answer to the cold frame. Didn’t know plastic isn’t a good insulator. Keep up the good work, Dennis. I love your articles and this blog.) - Wild Child -
