Polish Spirit

Polish Spirit

Clematis Polish Spirit is doing very well this year.It's in a trough and I can see it through the  kitchen window when I am at the sink!  I took the good advice of another contributer to this site... prune in March ,feed well and control slugs.

The feeding it paying off, looks fantastic and a lovely sight from your kitchen sink.

Lovely colour.

Now that is looking fantastic!! and what a view. Do you keep it in a planter all the time? Im thinking of putting a few of mine in planters to see if they will be any better at performing!

I'd be tempted to spend more time at my kitchen sink if I had that to look out at. Lovely plant and you have it in great shape Michele.

Thanks all. Yes Jackie, it's in a planter about 60x30x30 cm all the time -  5th year now I think. Another one, The President, has done well for years  in a big pot at the front door. It got mildew last year and this year though. More TLC needed I guess.

Great thanks Michele. I'll definitely be trying that for next year.
