Laura Watson

Master Gardener, Master Pruner and ‘Clemaniac’

Laura Watson loves sharing her ever-increasing clematis knowledge with others. She has grown clematis for over 20 years and currently has over 170 in her garden. Laura grows clematis everywhere—in trees, shrubs, and roses, scrambling over perennials, in pots, and on fences, trellises, and arbors. She is a member of the International Clematis Society, the British Clematis Society, and the Friends of the Rogerson Clematis Collection in Oregon, and regularly attends International Clematis Society Conferences in Europe and the US. Laura’s clematis articles have been published in the Journal of the International Clematis Society and locally in PlantAmnesty’s newsletter. Laura is a Master Gardener and a PlantAmnesty Master Pruner. She recently retired from a seven-year stint as PlantAmnesty’s General Manager.


Growing Clematis in Small Spaces

Not all clematis are monsters! Many of these gorgeous flowering vines can beautifully and easily grace small gardens and ornamental pots. From Clemaniac Laura Watson, you will learn how to choose a clematis for more limited spaces as well as how to care for and prune them. You’ll be enthused to go right out and buy a clematis for your small space. You will also go home with an informative and detailed handout about growing clematis.
