New Website Growing Clematis in South Africa

Dear All,

I have just completed a website that I designed for my friend, Mrs. Marie Lambert, the only grower and breeder of Clematis in South Africa. When we started growing them here, the "experts" told us that they will never grow here. Well, she proved them wrong and are growing more than 150 varieties here today. Most of them in full African Sun.

Please check out her website:

Although directed at growing Clematis in South Africa, the site has lots of information especially if you are growing in containers. Just reverse the seasons for the USA.

Keep the spirit alive!
