Clematis - can I prune now to stop growth?

Posted: 28/05/2016 at 18:55

Yarrow, apparently they dont like their roots getting too hot, and I suppose in a pot in full sun the roots much be roasting!

Kitty, how is the comtesse doing now its in the ground? Maybe next year I will find a spot in the ground the plant something less fussy in the pot (goodness knows what) 

Richard, love the bicycle!

I can't believe how well behaved these cat/dog combos are. They must have grown up together.

See original post

 We've had the dog nearly 3 years and its taken that long for the cat to start liking her! Cat is definately boss

Yarrow you've probably done the best thing for yours. I've worked out that clematis HATE being in pots! However it is not possible to put mine in ground where I want it so Im giving it one last chance! 

Richard, so you think I'll be alright to chop some off mine? Well I'll give it a go then and see what happens 

thanks all

Unfortunately its too late for me to do that as it is already at the top of the trellis!

Ok so I have a clematis 'Comtesse de Bouchard' which has been in a pot the last 2 or 3 years. I prune it as it says I should in early spring down to 30cm from ground or lower even. However, it tends to grow very tall and leggy far beyond the trellis it is on. All the flowers end up high above eye level with ugly sparce stems below.. My question is can I prune out the tips now beffore it flowers to stunt its growth and encourage flowers lower down, or doesnt it work like that? Will I kill it? Any other suggestions? Many thanks 

Plant Id please.
