Hi green fingered finch.
I've managed to very gently detach a pot-growing clematis from trellis, got it out of its pot, transplanted it in the ground, stuck an obelisk on top and very gently wound the stems around the obelisk starting at the bottom. There was 5ft of growth and about a dozen stems - but doing it very gently I've managed to make the change.
I don't know if you'd want to try it - but if you can be careful with it - you might be able to do something similar and maintain successful growth.
I watered it with a bucket of water before doing anything and when I transplanted it and tied it in to the obelisk, I watered it, gave it a feed and after 5 days it looks very happy. Maybe more of a risk for you to try if you already have blooms - I don't know. Mine is just budding now.
