Clematis montana 'Marjorie'...
I am a little confused by conflicting advice given to me about this montana. I thought I didn't have to prune it at all as an early Spring flowering variety. However, some one has just pointed out that , although it's got a lot of leaf, there are no flower buds. She also said it should have been pruned back to 30cms last year...it's first...and back to 1 m in early Spring this year. I've done neither.....BUT, on searching for the original label, this is indeed what is says!
!) Should I cut it back NOW?
2) Should I have cut it back each year?
3) Do I leave it alone for this year...and do it next year?
HELP! Any advice would be gratefully received, folks!
The internet gives me conflicting advice as well!
