Cultivation Advice.
These spring flowering clematis produce clusters of sweetly scented flowers. Their long narrow leaves are evergreen, leathery in texture and are similar to those of the common laurel.  The Armandii Group prefer a sunny, free draining situation to perform well.  If required, prune immediately after flowering. 

Evergreen clematis prefer a light loam or free-draining soil. Although evergreen, occasionally some leaves will die off, this is natural and they can be carefully trimmed off.  In extreme heat, some may drop their leaves. Do not water too much at this time, but give them two or three doses of liquid tomato feed at fortnightly intervals which will perk them up and will encourage them to produce fresh leaves later in the summer. Avoid them becoming too excessively wet during their first autumn and winter in the ground or perhaps plant in the spring.

About Our Plants

At Thorncroft the quality of our clematis plants is very important to us and we will not compromise on keeping up the high standards our customers have come to expect.

We supply plants mostly in a 3 litre container, growing on a 3 foot (1 meter) bamboo cane support, occasionally a 2 litre pot is sufficient to ensure a quality plant is produced.  Your clematis can not always be delivered in full flower, however we will aim to send you the most advanced plant for you so that you get the best display possible in the first year of our plants being in your garden.

Chelsea Chop - Also from time to time we will need to prune plants back to keep them tidy on their cane. While every effort is made to only supply plants in full leaf we may on occasions send plants that have been recently pruned or had leaves removed and will include notes to explain why this has been done.  It's known as the 'Chelsea Chop' and is commonly seen in late May and June.

Please keep in mind that some of the more specialist clematis have different habits, so these standards can vary depending on the type you are buying but it gives you a good guide on what to expect. 

From the very outset, the Thorncroft philosophy is to provide a clematis which will thrive for the customer in their garden but also to provide the expert knowledge that we have gained over the years to help advise you which clematis are the best.

We have been sending plants by mail order to customers all over the world and have build up a good knowledge of which plants perform best in various parts of the globe. We also value your experience and if would like to tell us about which clematis you grow in your country, please do, it will allow us to continue learning

Worth the wait
23 May 2023  | 

Our order was placed just before the first May BH and with the Coronation it may have impacted. However the many emails informed me of the orders progress. The delivery company then held up delivery by a couple of days so I was a little concerned about the state of the plants. I neednít have worried; beautifully packed and fabulous condition. Thank you.
