I propagated my neighbours clematis (late summer flower in deep blue/mauve) in the summer last year… good success and now have 7 x 10″ plants. I guess I have 2 questions. Firstly, are they too small to plant out as I have seen they need to be planted deeply, which could be a problem as they are not too tall yet. Secondly, will they flower this year or when should I expect flowers.

Grow these cuttings on in the pot for the summer and plant out in October. Deep planting means just 10cm or so. They should flower possibly next year, in good conditons,  or the following year.
