Is it OK to grow this clematis in a large pot please? Having lost 2 late flowering clematis in the garden, I want to make sure I keep this one (when I purchase it). Also when is the best time to plant the clematis?

Most clematis like to have cool roots and pots are prone to becoming fairly hot and dry. If you can place the pot in shade and encourage the plant to grow up into light, you might get away with it. Place stones over the plant's base to keep it cool. When you plant it, plant it deep - this reduces wilt. If it does die back, it may emerge again from the base so don't chuck it out until the next year. I have a couple in pots that seem to be resurrected each year. I'd plant it in Spring although you might be able to buy a bargain now - plant it and tuck it away over winter. Good luck...

Thanks for the input, I will investigate where the best place to put it is to cover the parameters you have suggested
