Did I mess up?
Obviously I did, but tell me where!
Last spring I bought a clematis from a garden center (not big box store). I don't remember the variety, just that it was a type-3 and purple.
I dug a hole about 2 feet in diameter and 2 feet deep and filled it with potting soil. I tried to make sure it was watered enough.
Was the potting soil the wrong thing to do? I tried to plant one directly in my clay soil several years ago. It also died quickly. I'm talking within a month it was fried.
I am not the gardening type, but I have been sucessful in planting other trees/shrubs, and grass. Though, they don't seem to "thrive", except for the grass. I wish stuff would grow faster.
