I bought three Winter Beauty clematis mail order 3 years ago. I gave 1 to my mum after a year of growing them on in pots . She lives on north east coast and has planted it against a windy fence south facing but in shade some of the day. She has flowers but I don't on either of my 2 remaining. One was planted 2 years ago on trellis fence south facing and had a single flower bud in December but what I thought was flower buds in the leaf joints have not developed. The second one is against a west facing wall in sun from midday in summer and same again - no flowers just immature buds in leaf joints. When this was in a pot in same place last winter It had half a dozen flowers. Any ideas what is going wrong. Thanks

On plant Clematis



Ive got this one climbing the shed and arch which are east facing never had any trouble with it flowering and its been chopped about quite a lot when replacing the shed and again when it was redirected towards the green house.
