Choosing a place to change
In order for the plant to take root, it is important to choose the right time for a clematis transplant and place. They grow well on the south side of the site. This plant loves light, so it should be under direct sunlight for at least 6-7 hours a day. In this case, the bush will grow rapidly and bloom for a long time.
This rule applies to most species, but there are some exceptions, such as Princes. This is a plant with large flowers, the bush of which blooms twice a season. It also has good frost resistance and the ability to grow even in poor lighting conditions.
For clematis, any type of soil is suitable, except for marshy. It is important that the landing site is on a hill, then in the spring meltwater will not flood it.
The timing of clematis transplantation depends on the climate in which the bush grows. In the southern regions and the middle lane, landings are carried out in the fall. Winter in these territories is not too cold and autumn transplantation makes it possible to take root well in a new place and already next summer it will bloom profusely.
In the northern regions, it is better to transplant the bush in spring, in the middle or end of April, and also in early May. The bush does not bloom the first summer after transplantation, but can survive the cold winter.
The best option is to transplant clematis to another place in the fall, in the first or second month. In colder regions, transplants are performed in the summer, in August, so that the roots have time to grow stronger before the onset of cold weather.
This plant belongs to climbers, so you need to build a support for it before replanting. Usually, decorative trellises are installed for this, but the clematis shoots are very strong and tenacious, therefore they are able to entwine any support.
In winter, the branches must be removed from the support, otherwise they will die. Sometimes it’s hard to do, because the stems are very large.
Clematis transplant rules in the fall:
- if the support has a complex curled shape, it is worth taking species that need pruning in the fall;
- Do not grow clematis near buildings with a sloping roof - they can be damaged by running water.
- the distance between plants should be at least 1.5-2 m;
- the optimum groundwater level should not exceed 1.3 m.
When transplanting in the fall, it is important that the roots of the plant are able to take root faster and clematis begins to scrub. You also need to dig a hole. If the soil is heavy and clay, then a nutrient mixture is taken to fill the wells. For its preparation use:
- turf mixture.
Before transplanting the plant into the soil to another place, add a little ash, as well as a glass of lime or mineral fertilizer. Clematis has a root neck, it is recommended to fill it up not with earth, but with a mixture of ash and sand.
When transplanting clematis, a little ash is added to the soil
A clematis transplant pit is prepared in advance. Its depth should be at least 60 cm in depth, and 50 cm in width. A drainage layer 10-15 cm thick is laid at the bottom of the hole.
To do this, use:
- chipped brick.
Then it is filled with prepared soil from equal parts of sand and peat. Organics should also be added to the mixture to improve plant nutrition, and 2 parts of the soil. You can not use the land that was extracted from the pit, it is better to purchase a special garden mixture. Mixing the components, add about 185 g of dolomite powder to each well.
Also, do not use fresh manure, because it can burn the roots. Filled with a mixture of pits, leave it for a while.
A young bush transfers the transplant process from one site to another better than an adult. It is important to carefully get the roots out without damaging them. Older bushes are more difficult to transplant, so care must be taken during the process. Clematis, who are more than 5-6 years old, are not recommended to be transferred to a new place. They have strong long roots that are hard not to damage.
To transplant a bush you need:
- dig branches to a depth of not less than 35-45 cm;
- cut shoots at the level of 2-3 kidneys;
- carefully raise the roots and move to a new place.
When planting in a new hole, the root neck of the bush is deepened by 10 cm, and then carefully watered with settling water. After the flower has taken root, low ornamental plants can be planted around it. They will create the necessary shadow for the roots, because sunlight is only useful to the top of the plant.
After transplanting clematis to a new place, it is necessary to water and loosen the soil. You can’t feed him too often during this period, because the roots will begin to rot and the plant will die.
For feeding, you can use a solution of copper sulfate and Strawberry concentrate. In wet weather, the soil at the base is sprinkled with ash, this will protect the bush from decay.
Sometimes, during an autumn transplant, clematis can also suffer from a lack of moisture. To prevent this, the soil is mulched with humus or moss.
Clematis is a beautiful ornamental plant that is not whimsical to care for. It is only important to maintain an optimal level of moisture, to prevent waterlogging of the soil and to feed.
Sometimes there is a need to transplant clematis. Autumn transplantation is not difficult, but it is important not to damage the roots, especially if the bush is adult. It is also necessary to prepare the well in advance for landing.
