So I am seeing a lot of contradictory information. I bought a few clematis this year and planted them about a week ago. Do I fertilize in the first year/season? And if so, what exact fertilizer should I use? I\'m extremely new to gardening, so any information will help and be very appreciated! :)
The first year; water, water, water! For your new clematis, working in lots of compost and some granular organic fertilizer.
Established Plants. Fertilize your established clematis once per month throughout the growing season, starting in early to mid-spring and continuing into midsummer.
