we have a plant growing in our garden and the trunk is kind of twisted like giant roots, it has green leaves and flowers a lot in spring. I'm new to gardening so wanted to know if anyone knows what it is?!
Ive attached photos of the leaves and stems which are vine like!
Please help if you can
thanks v much
I'm thinking a Clematis montana
Looked up on google images and that is it! Now I can work out how to care for it ?
Prune immediately after flowering, cutting off flowered shoots and any in places you don't want. Tie in any new shoots through the summer, to flower again next spring. I have it rambling through an old hawthorn.
Thankyou! Since I missed pruning after it flowered last year should I now leave it until it flowers again, or should I cut the dead leaves off now ready for spring? Thanks again for you help and advice ??
Leave it as it is for now - when it is flowering post a photo on here and we'll be able to advise you re pruning.
