dug up old, old clematis

andi_mn(z4MN)July 1, 2013

hi folks, I had a clematis that got overrun with weeds and poison ivy. and still it has struggled but no blooms this year. I just had to dig it to deal with weeds and ivy. in the process most of those so slim and fragile stems broke. wondering..can I cut each one of those stems off below breaks and will it regrow? the roots look great, the ground is wet and I've got a good place for it. what do you think?
thanks, andi

No problems. Do exactly as you have described and it will grow back, though you probably won't get flowers this year, and some types may sulk a bit. Next year it will look great again.

Have similar question about my Josephine ~ she loved her site until Carefree rose got carried away growing beautifully despite good pruning & a Mini rose grown tall. She also survived 2 yrs of chlorosis problem w/ treatments. 'thought I've lost her after our drought of Aug/2012-Mar/2013 ~ she returned as a babe w/ so far, no signs of chlorosis & proceeded to put on blooms! Yay!

I need to move her to a sunnier site but fear how much around to dig & how deep ~ please share your experiences! She is 12 yrs old.

TIA
