Getting clematis ready for winter
This was the first time I planted a clematis vine. It was a Monrovia Nelly Moser, if my memory serves me correctly. I planted it this summer and gave it a supporting structure of a bamboo tripod. The vine did not die and it did not produce new leaves. Just kind of sat there. The soil was new topsoil I had added, and I fertilized once with Plant-tone. Now with winter coming, what do I do with this clematis vine to ensure its survival? Thank you.
