Kingfisher clematis pruning?
Bought from a nursery and planted last mother's day. It grew ok last year, and now it looks pretty much all dried out in a small pile on the ground. I grabbed a bit of it and it was brittle and snapped to bits in my hand. The instructions I saved from last year say to 'light prune' in the spring, but there is nothing left to prune. Do I just cut it off at ground level? Will new shoots grow out of the ground? A bit confused. Thanks. Ed.
BTW I realize that this is probably the lamest question I could ask on a clematis forum, and I will be continuing to research, starting in the FAQ's.
