Hi plant lovers, I know we have a Clematis forum but this one is a lot more active. I bought my first Clematis yesterday which I will have to keep in a pot since I'm a renter, the woman at the nursery told me to go up 1-2 sizes bigger and get a bigger trellis which I already did, I bought a wood one. As I was trying to get it un-wrapped around the hard plastic trellis I broke a vine, what should I do? The vines are tightly wrapped around the bottom, is it early enough to cut it back without destroying it for the season, she has buds on her already? We are just starting to have warmer weather here, it about time, last week we had hard freezes

Let it get adjusted to the new home and new growing conditions first. Changing the growing conditions can be very hard on a plant at first. Be careful not to over water your plant because when you transplanted into a larger container, you increase the water volume. That means more water in the root zone and less oxygen in the soil. Let the top inch or two dry "well" before watering and when you water, let just a tiny bit come out the bottom and into the tray, but don't let it set in drain water ever. When the plant thrives you can start your pruning and training on the trellis. Good luck
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
