Trellis - new position for a Clematis

Having a not so healthy looking clematis for a few years was perplexing, we had it in a container against a North East facing wall.  It hardly got any sun apart from right at the end of the day as the sun sets.  As our garden knowledge has grown we have found a permanent home for it in a border in a sunnier position that faces due South.  

We have used some leftover plastic trellis from the allotment and used pins to attach a piece of wood to the top and bottom of it then screwed those into a fence post, this enables the plant to catch rain water and have a space between the fence surface and the trellis to wind around.  We have finished it off by painting the wood batons the same colour as the fence panels.
