What Do You Use To Support Your Clematis
What do you use to support/grow your clematis? I have 5 growing up my deck railings and on trellises. I just purchased 4 new clematis and haven't decided what to do with them yet. I've read some of you have them growing up trees, through roses, etc. I'm nervous about having one grow through my roses - I was thinking they would compete with each other too much. How about growing up trees - don't they compete with tree roots and nutrients?
What other creative places do you grow them? What structures do you have good luck with (trellis, tomato cages, etc.).
I have the perfect spot around a rain pipe at the corner of my house but I think I would need something else near or a around the pipe so that it's not too heavy for the pipe to support. Any suggestions?
Any pictures would be great to see too. I need some ideas on what to do with my new babies.
