Pruning Group 2

This group includes the early large flowered hybrids
Group two clematis flower on both previous seasons wood and on new growth.

Prune lightly in winter to strong buds. Make sure you cut out all weak and dead growth and generally tidy up the plant. After the spring flowering, prune again to remove all the spent flowers to encourage a fresh set of flowers in summer.

If the plant is sparse, prune harder to encourage branching.
Feed after each pruning to encourage new growth.
