Loana, can you tell us exactly when it flowers, please ?

Best to enjoy all the flowers in my opinion, then chop the Group 3's hard back in February.

Where do you live that your clematis are head to toe in full flowers in November ?

My clematis are still head to toe in full flowers. I had cut them hard mid season when they were affected by mildew. Should i cut them now or leave them. Some group 2, some group 3.

Hello Loana, the best food for clematis is H2O, gallons and gallons of it.

Exceptions to my previous quote are some of the ' yellows ', orientalis, tanguticas are not too happy to be pruned when dormant, best to wait until you see plenty of new wood in April, then prune.

You can chop it back now, then chop it back again in February if any new growth is showing.


Being a group 3 you should have planted it quite deep.


It takes a few years to get a big root system established, then you can expect plenty of flowers.


First year sleep, second year creep, third year LEAP.

Well, he won but.....
