When we moved to Romsey from Ampfield 18 years ago we planted a clematis in our new, much smaller, garden. It had never produced much by way of flowers, preferring to tangle itself with adjacent plants and thus spreading over a large area of garden. This year though, it flowered and it did so profusely. So just one flower from many to introduce June. I shall try to produce more variety in the second 6 months of the year.
