    How to prune clematis plants


    I have clematis plants in my garden. I am wondering when I should prune these (i.e. how often) and what does the process involve?

    "Prune your large flowering clematis during the spring, when the plant is still dormant. Remove any damaged, dead or weak stems, cutting back to a pair of healthy buds. Avoid heavy pruning at this stage as you may get less early flowers."

    "Prune during spring just remove the damaged or dead stems"

    "Flowering before early summer (June), do not prune, and
    Flowering from late June onwards, prune in late winter (February)"

    "Hi, best option is to google it and check out the RHS site on the issue as will be cheaper."
