How to prune 10 year old type 2 clematis?
I have a 10 year old type 2 clematis which has never been pruned before. It produces a blanket of lovely pink flowers every summer. However, the trellis it is on have to be replaced. I would like to prune the clematis and re-attach it to the new trellis.
I looked at the forum posts and all said it can be cut back hard. However, looking at the main branches, they are all very woody. Also, the branches are all tangled up. I'm not sure where to start and don't want to kill it by accident.
Could you please advise where should I begin? I promise to prune it once every year from now on ; )
