Planting Clematis in the Fall

Can you really plant clematis in Autumn? Of course you can! Even in the Frozen North!

Clematis in Fall

Just remember these few things:

  • Whenever you plant your clematis, follow our Planting Directions.
  • Make sure your clematis gets plenty of water after planting. The weather can be dry, even though fall is lurking around the corner.
  • Mulching is optional. We used to mulch fall-planted clematis until we forgot one year. They were fine, so we don't bother any more. However, if you do mulch, remember this - Don't place mulch on your plants until AFTER the ground freezes!
