CLEMATIS QUESTION

Asked April 21, 2020, 5:16 PM EDT

I have a clematis flowering vine that has outgrown its trellis and is flopping over at the top. Is it ok to prune off the top of the vine? Thanks Bob

Unfortunately, we cannot say what type of clematis you have. If you know when it blooms, that is a helpful clue when to prune. Take a look at the link which will give you more information
