What I hoped to find out is what do I do with this climber at present. I bought it last Summer and it was a really vigorous grower, producing a continous and wonderful display of flowers. However it looks extremely 'dead' at the moment, the snow a couple of months ago doing more harm than good, and I really don't know do I cut it back, cut back the dead bits or what do I do. Even the 'trailers' against the fence look as dead as a dodo. I'm quite sad about it. Any help really would be appreciated. Very many thanks
