I suppose this is the age old question. Most of my plants are fairly uncomplicated when it comes to pruning. My question is my clematis. I normally prune it at the end of Feb (it is in that particuar group of clematis - viticella I think). However, with so much late snow and frost I didn't do it. There still isn't much growth so should I risk doing it now or just leave it for this year. Thanks.

IMHE even the clematis they say you should not prune do actually seem to benefit from a trim around now

Seems to prevent straggly weak growth and encourages lots of new shoots from the base
