a quick question. I have 3 different clematis in pots along a trellis and very stupidly I pruned them all the same in Feb and down to around 30cm. I have type 2 abs type 3.
the type 3 looks ok and is producing big buds but the other 2 clematis are producing tiny flower buds that aren’t doing anything.
I know I’ve messed up on the pruning, the question is: have I ruined these plants for future years?

    In a word, NO.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    Ok thanks. So if I prune correctly this year hopefully I won’t suffer from zero flowers this year?

    When you prune next year they'll be fine - don't prune them again this year.
    As long as you let them grow on, and they have adequate care, you should get flowers on the Group 2s later   :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Excellent, thank you. They’ve grown really well so the foliage looks nice at least 😂
