My lovely new clematis Abilene who is just four days old. She has been lovingly tended and spoken to and I have to report that some little ones have come along to keep her company. Slugs are just longing to get into the pot but if they do they will come to a sticky end. This is the first clematis I have ever had so perhaps you can understand my delight at owning such a gorgeous new specimen.
This clematis was first introduced at the Chelsea Flower Show last month.
