I.Cl.S. - Propagation of Clematis

There are 3 ways to propagate Clematis. Taking cuttings or 'snips' are how Clematis are propagated commercially but may be a little tricky for beginners and take several years to get to the size that they can be planted in the garden.

Layering is an alternative for the home gardener which is likely to produce quicker and more 'accurate' results.

Seeds are how species can be propagated but otherwise Clematis do not come true from seed. However, this may be the only way some enthusiasts can obtain different varieties not available for sale in their part of the world.
