Pruning Clematis

Pruning Clematis is not necessary, but it will help you keep your climber in check and even help stimulate it to re-flower. You can often cut it back to about 30 centimetres above the ground after the first year. As a result, more shoots will appear at the bottom of the plant, giving your climber a fuller look. When cutting it back, remember that you always prune just above a bud (where leaves are growing, or are beginning to form). Regarding pruning, a Clematis can belong to three different groups, so make sure you research which ones you put in your garden and how to properly care for them.
