I planted a couple of Clematis Jingle Bells last year and they were doing really well they had grown a good metre up the trellis and appeared to be thriving. But now they appear completely dead. The leaves are limp and and are no signs of life at the leaf joints. See pictures - pretty sorry looking! Although they still seem pretty well anchored into the ground.
I am assuming the cold winter hasn't been kind to them as they were young plants and probably not well enough established to take the snow and the frost.
Any suggestions - could/should I cut them back and see what happens?
I have just planted a young clematis Snow Bells. What pruning regime should I adhere to? I have planted it so that it runs across a trelis seperating my garden from my neighbours. Can I allow it to take a natural course or should I prune it and then have to grow it each year?
