This is How You Water Clematis Correctly – What Really Matters

Clematis is considered the queen of climbing plants and is correspondingly demanding when it comes to care. With regard to the professional water supply, there are a number of aspects to consider. Find out here how to water a clematis correctly.

Watering clematis depending on the weather 

The clematis is one of the thirsty plants, but cannot stand waterlogging. In order to skillfully cover the water requirements of clematis, a dedicated addition to the natural amount of rain is important. How to handle it correctly:

  • Water freshly planted clematis plentifully, even if it has rained a little before
  • After watering, there should be no puddles of water on the floor
  • Check the soil every 2 days with a thumb test to water when the surface has dried
  • Always water directly onto the soil and do not water the tendrils
  • In the tub, the water requirement is generally higher than in the bed

If winter comes with severe frost and misses the water-giving snow, water the clematis on frost-free days.

I studied horticulture at the University of Guelph and in my free time I plant everything that has roots on a piece of land. The topic of self-sufficiency and seasonal nutrition is particularly close to my heart. Favorite fruit: quince, corner, and blueberry Favorite vegetables: peas, tomatoes, and garlic
