Spring Planting Ideas | Clematis and Roses
It finally feels like Spring in my garden as I walk through the landscape around the front of my home this early April morning. Hard to believe just five days ago we had 5″ of snow covering the garden. This is the time of year I enjoy weeding, mulching, moving plants around, and adding new plants to the garden especially in my front landscape because it is the first to dry up in the Spring. During the early days of Spring, you want to be very careful not to step on the grass too much until it drys up to prevent damage. Today I want to share a great combo planting idea for your home garden. Take a look at the video I put together featuring my clematis and rose plantings in my early April landscape. I share a few pruning and planting tips you won’t want to miss.

Highlights From Clematis Pairing with Roses
Images of Clematis that pair up great with most home garden roses. It is fun to watch the roses try to catch up to the Clematis that usually bloom earlier each year. in the image below I show how the rose climber is protecting the base of the clematis. Clematis like to be in the sun but their roots need the shade.
My Very First Clematis
Here are images of my first Clematis. I bought a small cutting at Walmart for $5 and this ended up being my star in the garden for many years. The plant died during some house renovations so I am looking for this variety to add to my collection Let me know if you have seen this giant white clematis!
