Last year I successfully grew one clematis. A Polish Spirit. I haven't
cut it at all, just let all the leaves die on the vine. After winter a
lot of leaves are dried in place. I remember the clematis had very
delicate, brittle wood when it was growing.
How can you tell this is still viable wood vs. dead wood? (it looks so
I can't see damage, but other vines have died off from very tiny
damage. Do you just wait it out?
When do clematis first show life? After frost date?
