How to Train Clematis Climber
I've never grown any climbers, and I would like to train a clematis variety for an area on one side of our deck, next to our patio. My question is, which variety would do well in a part sun-full sun area, and what is the best method for getting plants to climb? The trellis I would be using would not be a very large one, but there is the possibility that if the plant climbs vigorously, it may be able to wrap around the deck post, railing and possibly the aluminum balusters (assuming that it could attach without human help). Any recommendations or tips would be appreciated.
