WANTED: All Clematis Lovers

SunnySmiles51August 30, 2005

I am asking if anyone wants to send me cuttings of thier Clematis to root for them or exchange for another kind.

I keep one and send you back one or of another kind if rooted or when rooted.

I would like at least three cuttings of a kind

I am quite good at rooting all things and have some Nelly Moser rooting now, about 10 of them

I have a purple I am putting in also.

I have seeds of Radar Love and several others I will have ready to go next Spring. Would love some input.

I think the best way for myself (Ones I want to share) is to take one of my Vines and bend it to the ground or a pot is what I use and use a bobbie pin or something to anchor it in two places where there is joints with leaves and keep moist untill it feels like it is rooting.
I have never been able to root them in water but others do.
I also use potting soil and bottom heat if starting one given to me.
I am going to try a couple in a small glass of water with a airstone hooked to an aquarian pump all the way to the bottom and see if that works, it sure does work with other things.
Hope I could help

HI. I would love to try this with you. I have 3 clematis right now that are new since spring.

They are:

Dr. Ruppel
HF Young
and ?? Can't remember the name of the other one right now.

Oh, I have 4, I also have a sweet autumn.

They are not too large, so I can't get huge cuttings.

But tell me what to do and I will send them to you and then if you could at some time send me a rooted cutting of another one that would be great.

p.s. I love that Nelly moser

HI. I was wondering if you got any of the clematis I sent you to root? I tried rooting mine in water and had no luck.

Are you still doing this as I have many clematis varieties that you can root.
