Planting clematis

LilyPLilyP Posts: 15

I have just planted 5 clematis. I watched a Monty Don video where he recommends cutting them back after planting to help them grow strongly - do people find this necessary and if so how should I do it? 

Any advice please? I don't want to kill them and have never pruned clematis before so I'm nervous! If groups are important important I have planted are mostly group three - Betty Corning, Kaiu, Etoile Rose, Etoile Violette, Jackmanii Superba and one group 2, Julia Correvon.
