RE: starting clematis from seed

Starting from seed is not the easiest thing to do, especially if you are the impatient type (like me). Some clematis can take well over a year to germinate and others can take as few as a couple of weeks. You don't say which type of clematis you have attempted to grow from seed. If they were the type that takes longer than a few months, remember you need to move the bags/pots into a shady area during the warmer months to prevent from cooking the seeds.

Check the following link out for helpful tips and estimated germination times for various types of seed.
