Old clematis pruning

from Nikki Griffith

When I moved her e in 2019 I inherited these two clematis that were overtaking the garden. They had a good prune and for the last two years I have pruned them but they do need a weekly ‘haircut’ to stop them overtaking again. My question is – how hard can I prune them please? Or do I continue with these birds nests of clematis. These photos were taken last Friday.

I have inherited two old clematis and am not sure how much I should prune them back.

from Nikki Griffith

I have inherited two old clematis (about 30-40 years old I think) and am not sure how much I should prune them back. When I moved here in 2019 they were overtaking the garden and were pruned back and for the last two years they have had a good prune but not a drastic one but they do need keeping under control with a 'haircut' every week to stop them overtaking the garden. Can I prune them back really hard and if so, how hard or do I continue with what I am doing now. These photos were taken on Friday. Advice please!

What is this please?

from Nikki Griffith

Two of these striking 2-3 foot tall purple flowered plants have appeared in my garden. I thought they were irises coming up looking at their leaves but they definitely aren't!

The Year-Round Garden by Geoff Stebbings

from Nikki Griffith

This book is divided into seasons and then sub-divided into herbaceous, shrubs & trees, bedding, climbers and finally bulba and has wonderful photos as well as companion plants in various seasons - a most helpful book and one I refer to time and time again.
