Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
It's well worth planting this superb clematis to find out just how amazing it looks…and smells! Covered in masses of small purple, delicately scented flowers that look like blossom from July to August, this energetic climber will go on blooming until October! Keeping its appeal well into autumn, the dark green foliage provides an attractive contrast to the flowers at a time when other plants might be starting to fade. The wonderful colour and perfume of 'Sweet Summer Love' are best appreciated if you plant this climbing shrub in a large container, or against a sunny wall or fence, allowing it to clamber up free-standing or wall-mounted supports. Be sure to position this lovely clematis variety where you're able to enjoy its scent – described as 'delicate, sweet; with elements of evening stock, viola, vanilla with a note of almond...'. Height: 300cm (118in). Spread: 100cm (39in). Pruning group 3. Supplied in 9cm pots.

Flowering Months
Feed and water frequently throughout the growing season. This variety of clematis flowers in late summer on the current year’s growth. Pruning should be undertaken in spring before active growth begins. When pruning group 3 Clematis, cut back all of the previous year’s stems to a pair of healthy buds at around 20cm (8") above ground level. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant in order to protect the roots and conserve soil moisture.
Pot up clematis plants and grow them on until large enough to plant in their final positions. When planting clematis, choose a position in sun or semi-shade and plant the climber deeply in moist, fertile, well drained soil. Position the top of the rootball at a depth of 7.5cm (3") below soil level, to encourage new shoots to form from the base of the plant. Clematis dislike soils that are particularly wet or dry. Such soils can be improved by the addition of plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost. When growing clematis in patio containers use a soil based compost such as John Innes No.3. Train clematis plants onto a suitable support such as trellis, wires or a freestanding climbing frame.
