Planting Josephine, What to do?
I am so excited! My Josephine came today and she has four beautiful vines, and her roots are very good, but she is a Donahue, so small enough to need to be potted in a one gallon pot until fall and I need to cut the vines way back too, is this right?
Since she isn't blooming, cutting her back is doable now. I have read the things all of you knowledgable clematis growers have written and read your advice to other newbies regarding the need to cut back the vines on new aquisitions so the energy can go into making roots.
Since finding this forum, I have become obsessed with clematis. I now have five, twelve more are ordered from Chalk Hills, and my list of "have to haves" gets longer every day.
I really appreciate your generosity in sharing your knowledge. I know you will save me many mistakes, but I also know I can count on making some mistakes regardless.
Thank you for your help.
