I get good results just scattering them on soft soil and then covering 1/8" deep with potting soil
Walter, Is it too hot to grow clematis in Louisiana? I have always loved them but they seem to like a cooler climate. Plus, I have never seen them for sale at any garden centers around here.
Pam, possibly try one of the Clematis texensis cultivars like "Duchess of Albany" or "Gravetye Beauty." Because that variety is native to Texas it should take the heat better.
Thank you Walter. I will try that.
