Clematis jingle bells

Clematis is looking very sick. Hardly any leaves.

had a fantastic spell of flowers last autumn.

should I repot,  or prune ?

    They have a habit of doing this, particularly in the middle of summer (sorry, I know its still only spring but we've had a really dry spell), a good tidy and a feed (and lots of wet) should help it. If you think the pot looks a bit small for it then it's probably time for a bigger one, or preferably a nice sheltered spot in the ground. I've got a baby one and a wisley cream currently in pots and I really struggle to keep them hydrated

    How big is it?
    How big is the pot?
    How often do you water it?

    I would not feed a sick plant, just give it water. Once it has leaves again, you can feed.
