Lawn maintenance

I had a new lawn laid last year and have mown it this week for the first time this year. It is slightly ragged in patches and the area that lies in the shade appears to have died.

I have bought lawn seed for shady lawns, and have read  Gardeners' World 12 week plan for a perfect lawn.

Do I now leave the lawn for a week or two prior to scarifying (which is exhausting as the lawn is a fair size) or do I need to take further action during the next week to assist it to its' full potential !!

I have bought chicken pellet fertiliser which I have read needs to be applied in about three to four weeks - If this is the case, do I sow new seed at the same time?

Maintaining Clematis

I have clematis growing in a container. supported up the wall. They  have given lots of lovely white flowers years, although appear a bit few and far between in appearance, I wondered if, now that the new plants are growing I could encourage bushier flowers by pinching the tops of the plants ( I have heard of this method, but do not know what to do) and would appreciate any help at all)

Many thanks
