Clematis transplants

For a birthday gift to myself, I decided to jump right in to transplanting the clematis that has been running like ground cover for quite a few years.  I never could get it to run on a string trellis underneath the maple tree, so it was just allowed to sprawl.  While running like a ground cover, it rooted very well at many of the joints, so I cut the runners apart in between the rooted joints and planted them really close to the bottom of the wire fencing.  I have planted about 45 at this time, and there are about 20 more to dig and transplant.  I planted them only 3-4″ apart, in case some don’t survive.  If they all survive, this will be a CLEMATIS JUNGLE WALL!  Recently I read that clematis doesn’t like composted manure.  If anyone knows of more clematis information that might help this be successful, let me know.
