Advice Needed for Spring Fertilization

alameda/zone 8February 4, 2014

I am getting ready to start pruning my clematis in a couple of weeks, and plan to mulch them with aged horse compost. I would like some advice on fertilizing - have heard rose or tomato/vegetable fertilizer is good - but not sure what to do and would appreciate any advice. I admire photos of these huge, gorgeous clematis covered in blooms and want to know how to care for mine so they will someday look like this. Thanks!

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

In all honesty, with the aged horse compost, I can't imagine why you'd need anything else. My gardens get compost only and are quite happy.
