Yes, bring them in Valerie.  

If you have some spare seed I agree with Logan and would sow more 

Should see something by now....is your compost a little too wet?  Therefore cold?

I sow onion seed in late December

At last, my plant delivery was on doorstep this morning as I got back home.  Bit earlier than I thought but delighted . Bit flatter as a package than I expected though.    Opened it with a mixture of excitement and disappointment (as I said it was a smaller package) to find

Hiya Bandita

tough hardy plant.  

Your choice...leave those dead stalks to remind you where the plant is or cut them off. New shoots will form in a few weeks regardless of what you so. You can tidy up then.

montana is vigorous though Hazel but not, in my opinion, where it is in LG's situation 

A long line of fence there, LG, that will accommodate those vigorous shoots.  if you have the space, what better? 

I grow a scented montana...grandiflora.....where tied down/lowered stems do restrict growth in the sense that it is widely spread. A delightful splash of colour in spring 

a replacement alternative clematis makes no sense to me 

P.s. just read your latest post LG.  if you really don't like it and it looks "hideous" out of flower then get rid of it.  My thinking always is to take out anything I really don't like.  

WATCH OUT...........

Yes TERRI, try to get a generous rootball for stressfree transplant. Otherwise roots will  break up.  As with everything water really well,

WATCH OUT...........
