Clematis Wilt is a systemic condition that only really affects plants that are under sufferance. Healthy Clematis should not suffer from the wilt, however if you have a clematis that is of the large flowered kind (eg Group 2 varieties) that has all of a sudden drooped overnight (or very quickly) then 1st of all give it a full can of water and see if it picks up overnight (as 90% of all wilt suspected cases are simply plants drying out) if there is no change in the morning then water in a good quality fungicide Then cut the plant back to where the the wilt has started (depending on how long it's been will depend on how far the wilt has travelled down the stem, but don't be tempted to cut lower than 12 inches above ground level) then destroy the affected stems. Water regular and start to feed with a potash based feed (tomato food) as soon as fresh growth starts to appear. As long as the clematis has been planted deep in the first instance, the plant will re-shoot even if the wilt has travelled all the way to ground level. The RHS also have some more info and pics on the subject of 'Clematis Wilt' https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=125

Earwigs hide by day and emerge at dusk to eat ragged holes in the leaves and flower petals. Plants grown against fences or walls are at increased risk because the supporting structure provides many daytime hiding places. Some earwigs can be trapped by placing flowerpots loosely stuffed with hay on the end of bamboo canes near the clematis - they are then removed and destroyed during the day. Heavy infestations may need spraying at dusk with an appropriate pesticide ( Bayer SprayDay Killer). The RHS have more info on earwigs Click Here

Powdery Mildew Generally is a sign of water stress/ lack of feed/ poor planting conditions etc.. , this looks worse than it actually is, and can be treated with many sprays such as Westland Plant Rescue Control. Dispose of fallen leaves and try to keep up with watering, the following season. The RHS have a little more info and pics on mildews:- Click Here

Symptoms

On very old woody Clematis montanas, you will notice wilting and yellowing leaves or a failure to leaf in spring. Foul-smelling whitish-to-pink, thick, slimy ooze may be apparent at the base of the stem/trunk or in a puddle on the soil.

What we know

Clematis slime flux is a bacterial problem that can affect most very old Montana species. Damaged areas of stem are colonised by bacteria, leading to wilting, dieback and the appearance of a foul-smelling exudate from the stem. The disease can be fatal, but plants can sometimes be saved by the pruning out of affected parts.

These insects in their adult form look like medium sized black beetles and can normally be found residing on or under leaves which they feed on leaving what looks like an irregular bite. This probably will do little harm to the plant but it is the eggs and associated larvae that they lay in the soil by the roots that do the damage. The larvae have a voracious appetite for roots and you will not know your plant has a problem until it wilts and dies. They can be a real problem if you grow plants in containers where they are most likliest to be found. There are now some control products available on the market including nematodes,provado, and scotts vine veevil killers ( they are all very effective if used mid-late summer as they prevent the larvae from doing any damage in winter through to spring). The adult weevil cannot fly so if you have a greenhouse then it is a good idea to grease the pillars as this stops the weevils climbing onto any raised benches. Or use Agralan insect barrier glue around the base of pots/ planters etc to trap them on. However the more natural option would be to try to introduce/encourage more Birds, Toads, Shrews, Hedgehogs into the garden as they all love to feed on them.

Whitefly:- These insects are only usually a pest to plants grown in greenhouses although they do occasionally attack outside plants. They generally do little damage as they usually arrive too late in the season to do any great harm. They can be controlled by insecticides but due to their short life cycle you must spray at least three times in periods of less than one week. Greenfly/Aphids:- Various greenfly and blackfly attack clematis, especially during spring and early summer. Heavy infestations at the shoot tips can stunt growth and soil foliage with a sugary, sticky excrement known as 'honeydew'. Black, sooty moulds can develop in this substance. Check new growth for aphids and, if necessary, spray with an appropriate pesticide or alternatively attract aphid predators such as ladybirds. The RHS have more info on aphids :- Click Here
