Rena,
       Clematis cuttings strike easily and is not difficult to grow at all. You have to remember though to keep the bottom few centimetres of the stem off the ground as it has a tendency to rot. I normally cut the bottom from a plastic bottle and train the vine through. BTW I will also add some Vigna seed when I send the yellow Gloriosa seed

Johan and Paula

All three pics come from the same plant. I have physically inspected the base of the plant. I myself am quite stunned. That is why I posted the pics.

 :mmm: I am stunned too  ??? :o
Is it not possible that the Snail Vine choked the Clematis and it is now growing in its place  ???


Bennie
Can you show us a pix of the clematis vine growing through a bottle  ??? I am finding it hard to visualise  :)
Never regret anything that made you smile.

Hey Bennie -

Thanks for the advice on the clematis - and for the vigna seeds - you're a star.
Retired - now full-time gardener - and loving it!
