Clematis

I have two containers both with different Clematis in them. They both have been growing well and suddenly some of the leaves are going crisp and brown and others just brown at the edges. Has anyone any idea as to the problem and what can I do about it.
Thanks

Clematis

This may seem silly, but have you been watering it enough? Dry and crisp leaves usually means lack of water.

Same thing happened with ours and I have read that broad leafed clematis tend to die off like this just when they are growing well.

could be clematis wilt. our Josephine suffered this for 2 years(in a sunny position) then we moved it to a shadier border and she does very well now. clems like their roots cool with plenty of water if weather is dry. Our Princess Diana is not doing well this year but hoping for better things next year, might give her a move to different spot. good luck, keep at it. xx

Hi Pattie,Do you think they may need a good feed of potash? Clematis do need plenty of water,if you know the type you could check on one of the sites online and find out whether they are north south etc facing and move them accordingly.I hope this helps.
Best Wishes,

Re Clematis

My thanks to all for your suggestions. These are in full sun so maybe that is the problem altho' I do keep them well watered.Unfortunately I have no idea of the name of either of them but think I will move them somewhere more in the shade and hope!
Thanks again

Clematis

They also like cool roots . I have several in the ground and I put slate around them to keep roots shaded . Clematis wilt is as others have said a possibility . When did it flower? That will give a clue re the type it is and it could just be dying off after flowering and need a prune. Check in a gardening book they will tell you how and when .
