Q.Blooming Clematis

Zone Ottawa | pindapanda added on November 4, 2021 | Answered

My clematis blooms but not profusely like my neighbor’s does, and many others I have seen. I was told to add lime to the soil around the clematis. Is this a good idea, and if so is it dolomitic lime I would use. Thanks so much. Ottawa

Lime won't help it to bloom, but it can help correct pH, calcium, and magnesium issues. Fertilizers for blooming tend to be high in phosphorus and potassium.
