Clematis and Raised Bed Gardens
I'm a relative newbie to clematis but have been reading voraciously in this forum..
Can anyone tell me what impact a raised bed will have on a clematis over the winter?
We have a 18 foot by 5 feet raised bed garden in progress, its only going to be 12 inches high ( its all stone) with the cap and is going against a fence. The stone is a foot wide all around.
Do I have to take more precautions with overwintering all he clematis I plant in it or would they be more sheltered over the winter because of the raised garden aspect?
Should I rototill the existing soil before filling her up with good soil and compost?
Thanks for any help you can give me..
