bloom and prune advice
From this forum I've learned to prune newly planted clemmies (my group 2's) down to the first set of shoots in the spring (for the first three years, right?) so the roots have the opportunity to get really well developed, and then to prune it hard again immediately after blooming to enforce the process instead of letting it expand above ground..
I've been following this procedure with my warsaw nike, and it's almost in full bloom right now (and looking fab). Do I prune again after bloom this year even though it's a 4-year old? How do I treat it differently now that it's been through the double pruning procedure three times?
Also, planted Ramona this year, let her bloom (couldn't resist), and she's done, should I follow same procedure for her (prune to about 6 inches?)
And one more question for you, if I want to propagate by pinning and burying shoots in the ground to make their own roots, what time of year do I do this? Now? Fall?
