planted clematis to high ?
I do not know how I missed this (perhaps) important planting fact but I did not plant my new vine with the first "crown" below the soil level. I think I planted it as it was in the pot with the first crown about 6" off the ground. We are starting our 2nd season and I do not think trying to dig up and replant properly would be a good idea. Should I just prune it to above this first crown now? What about as the season progresses? Keep at 12-18 inches to encourage root developement? Thanks!!!
