I think more information is required francann, do you know the name of the clematis? have you done any pruning?

I agree with Digger we need to know what type of clematis it is. Also was it planted last year? Is it planted in the shade or in the sun? What soil mixture did you plant it in and have you fed it with any plant feed since planting it?

it is armandii and i did prune it a little when i first planted it but not since.  the roots are in shade and the rest of the plant catches the sun.  the soil is quite heavy and i have fed it with plant food

Well armandii are a prune group 1, I haven't grown these myself but from what I know they should flower about March or April, as the plant is against a wall it may be in what is called a "rain shadow" so it would be useful to ensure the ground is moist, and they don't like windy places maybe your soil is a little too heavy?
