I grew Silver moon and Sunset in hanging baskets one year but their roots ended up too restricted and dry by the end of summer despite regular watering and not being in full sun. They've done much better since I liberated them into the ground.
I have started pruning my group 3 clems and have taken cuttings of Crystal Fountain as there were so many buds higher up. Not convinced they'll work this early but nothing ventred, nothing gained. With others like Arabella, Little Nell, Princess Diana and Etoile Violette I shall try layering a couple of stems to see if taht works better and then cut all the other stems as usual.
