Clematis seedlings :)

Marcia, if you read this...your clematis seeds from 'the box' sprouted just fine! I Ws'd them and got 8 seedlings :')
I've since repotted them seperatly and am babying them under some hoops with cloth over them with my herbs.

My question is...can I plant them out this summer when they're a little bigger? Will they be tough enough to overwinter? Or should I winter them inside? I don't have a good place inside to let things go dormant though, but I've noticed in the gallery that some of you have had new ones potted up inside. They are the hardy type...starts with a 'T' i think...I can't find the packet darn it.

Appreciate any advice...Toots

These would be the tangutica ones? C. tangutica 'Radar Love' is who they are, then. I planted one out the summer after they were winter-sown and it was fine - still growing strong, as a matter of fact. :)

I gave the others away, so i can't vouch for what they did, though i do know that at least one other one survived the winter.

Not much for advice, i guess, but i hope it does well for you!

Thanks Marcia...that helps. If I end up with one or two out of the eight I'll be happy!

RE: Clematis seedlings :)

I transplanted some seedlings late last summer and we are in the dry zone here near Saskatoon. Only 1 or 2 out of 6 died. They were in hard places to survive!

RE: Clematis seedlings :)

Tangutica is very hardy and pretty difficult to kill so I think you will do fine with your seedlings. They self sow all over and the little guys will grow like crazy if you let them. I'm always yanking them out of my bed.(my garden bed that is! LOL)

RE: Clematis seedlings :)

LOL never know about gardeners...we do love our plants!
So, that's all good news :) Thanks everyone.
