do you do a "Chelsea chop ? if so what plants !

Two years ago my Clematis alpina got the 'Chelsea scalp' and came back the next year bigger and better than ever.

I was worried that it would not recover but it's still thriving and flowering well - so far, so good.

Must say I only 'scalped' because the plant had become unsightly and I wanted to move it away from the drainpipe it

 

 

entwined.

 

 

It is in a sunny position, in a large pot, just under the kitchen window, has been there for about six years and seems quite happy.

 

 

Does anyone have care advice for Clematis alpina? I am wondering if I 

should repot the plant after it finishes flowering this year, or leave it alone?
