I typically use organic rose food for our clematis plants. clematis have about the same nutritional needs as roses. just follow the directions on the rose food package. along with that, mix 1 cup of alfalfa meal into the surrounding soil of your clematis plants when fertilizing. add alfalfa meal once a month. flowers galore!!!
