Hi Beany going towards 18 month's ago  when we bought our bungy erein Norfolk I saved the stones from the first plums we ate off a very sickly looking plum tree in our new garden, about 3 weeks ago to my surprise  2 nice shoots appeared, now 4 inches high and looking very sturdy, I think i will also save them and see how they fare just for fun, the tree after some tlc is now doing ok as well good luck

Morning all from sunny muns in Norfolk,cold dull but gardening goes on especially in the warm G/house, Right question... New Clematis purchased this year about 12/14 inches tall and healthy, now in big pots outside ready to climb ,and they have taken off in a big way some new stems now 12 inches tall ,some thick some not so thick , now can I trim or pinch back to a pair of leaves to get a bushier plant or is this not possible with Clems no 3 or not needed as I don't want all growth and no flowers, our first no 3 clems ,Mr President, mandelay, Villa de Lyon, any advise please folks,
