Hi there
 
Following on from my first post, needing to prune my clematis 'very severely' after letting them do there own thing!  I have two trellis wigwams that have become very unstable and need to be replaced with something else.  Can I dig up and replant old (and new) clematis so that I can train them up new obelisks?
Kind regards
Veronica

That's easy - yes you can.  It would be ideal to do it when they're less stressed, say in the autumn after giving them a good soaking the previous day, and cutting them back.  They're quite vigorous in general.

Thank you.  I am so pleased to hear that, it means I can plant them where the soil is better for them.
Kind regards

Does that include clematis that are quite woody and don't have leaves for the bottom 30 or 40 centimetres?
Kind regards
