I had success with 'radar love' yellow clematis with normal wintersowing. The seedlings were slow growers. Other varieties didn't germinate after over a year. I dumped the container when I moved.

Andi, your are too impatient with the Clematis seeds. Most need 2 years, so don't dump your containers too soon.
The Clematis I had germinated within a year were the 'Radar Love' C. stans and C. integrifolia.
