I have a vigorously growing Clematis which flowers April/May. When should I cut this back and how far ?

I hope so it was fantastic last year !! Should I just leave it or do you recommend I cut it back to its base?

Thank you - it just looks so sad !!  It had been beautiful last year and it is the Scottish Flame Flower.

I bought this plant last year and it was fabulous growing all ove a conifer.  While I see lots of shoots on other plants the stem look completely dead.  Should I have cut it down to its base ?

For many years I have tried without success  to grow a Tropaeolum up a conifer.  This year I bought a larger plant a n it flowered beautifully.  It now look dead which I am hoping is natural die back.  What do I do now.  Do I prune it to its base and do I mulch ??

No flowers.  Lots of new growth which I don't know what to do about either.

I have had a patio pear tree and plum tree now for 2 years.  Still no fruit. What am I doing wrong?

I have a patio plum tree  and a patio pear tree each are in a pot and I bought them last year.  I had thought I would get fruit this year. They seem to both have gone to growth - no flowers therefore no fruit.  Should I cut them back and if so by how much?
