I bought a clematis piilu last summer and want advice on pruning. I read on the internet that it needs pruning 30cm from base during 1st year/ 70cm 2nd year/150cm third year. As its only about 30cm at present do I need to prune it now or wait till next February. The plant is only 8 months old



This is classed as an Early Large flowered hybrid and as such it would not normally need any pruning. If it grows to a reasonable size then any pruning would only involve removing dead or damaged shoots, after flowering.
