I have a couple of montana clematis which I think are group 1. The are just a mass of tangled almost dead looking growths. Can I prune them now, even though my book tells me not to bother. Will they look good in the summer if I leave them alone?

According to the breeder Princess Kate is texensis group, ( although we will never know for sure because no parentage is declared ), so therefore it should be pruned to the floor in February. You could try to root some of the stems that are showing new growth, well worth a try and doesn't cost anything.
