Climbers advice

Lynn142Lynn142 Posts: 128
We have several 2-year old climbers that we planted along an ugly fence but we didn’t get around to pruning any of them last year and although they have been flowering this year, some of them have very thin stems and now wonder if this is normal and what do we need to do about pruning? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    The clematis is never going to thrive in that tiny pot.
    Do you know what the ones on the fence are? I can't tell from the photo. 
    Climbers of any kind need trained correctly to get coverage on a fence. They're very close to the fence too, which won't help. It makes it difficult for them to get adequate moisture. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
