When to plant and prune clematis
Clematis are a relatively straightforward plant to grow, but without correct pruning you run the risk of plants becoming a tangled web of stems that become bare of flowers at the base. Clematis are classified into three groups: early flowering, large flowering and late flowering. If your clematis flowers in winter or spring, it is in Pruning Group One, early flowering. As a rule of thumb, if it flowers before June, don’t prune.
Prune your late flowering clematis during the spring, when the plant is still dormant. If your clematis has large flowers in early summer, it can be left mostly unpruned, though deadheading immediately after flowering back to a bud below the spent flower can encourage blooms.
