Clematis ‘Prince Charles’

I have a problem – my clematis ‘Prince Charles’ is putting out new growth with clear determination! It is only early December and not at all what I expected so I consulted the RHS. It is a young plant, put in earlier this year and the RHS advises me to ‘…Prune in late winter or early spring…

We need cold weather!

The garden in Suffolk is not going to sleep – we need cold weather! One of the clematis, ”Prince Charles’, is sending out new growth, the Brunnera ‘Jack Frost’ are starting to grow, and the primroses are flowering – what should I do? Even ‘William Shakespeare’ is still flowering.
