Clematis Montana

Thank you Mike & Leadfarmer,

You have both put my mind at rest. I will leave it till spring arrives & see what happens. I am new to gardening, after only having a yard with pots, I now have a large garden, & I'm loving it. Hoping to get some raised beds built this year, as I grew some veg last year, but I want to do it on a bigger scale this year. The garden us 6 yrs old & I've got quite a few established shrubs & plants.
Thank you again, it's most appreciated .

I've got a clematis Montana, which is 6 years old. It had completely taken over one of my fences and blocked out the sunlight . It flowered last year( not a lot of flowers) and I decided to cut it down. As I'm disabled my neighbours very kindly cut it down for me, but left the trunk and branches of the clematis. At the moment it is completely bare, with no sign of any growth etc. Should it be cut right to the base ??? I'm frightened to do it in case it doesn't grow back at all. Any advice would be most appreciated, thank you.
