too cool roots?
I purchased two clematis Carmencita to climb up either side of the front entrance of my house and I ran trellis across the underside of the rafter ends so they could crawl across and, hopefully, meet (my house is only 13' wide). I got them mail order from Joy Creek nursery so they arrived cut back to a couple buds. One will need to be planted under the deck and come up through an opening I've made in the decking. Do you think it will work if I keep one in a pot until it gets some height on it and then plant it in the extreme shade under the deck? Should I put that one in a larger pot and plan on waiting until next year to plant it? I am new to this and don't know how fast I could expect these to grow a couple feet so there would be leaves in the light.
