West Midlands, United Kingdom
I HAD a Nelly Moser in full bloom, intertwined with a Honeysuckle and Festuca glauca at its feet.That was yesterday!
TODAY the clematis has died...every bloom bar one...shrivelled up and totally dead. I am assuming Clematis wilt...and cut out as much as I could SEE. It's difficult as it is so intertwined with the Honeysuckle.Even the leaves have died...so quickly!
WHAT do I do now, especially as I don't know if I've removed all of that stem? Do I cut it to the ground, including the Honeysuckle...or wait till Autumn and cut everything back then? It's in such a prominent position too!
Grrrr! The same thing happened 5 years ago...here one day, gone the next! Sorry, no photo....I acted very hastily!
