Sometimes I don't cut mine back much for the reason that I like to see them scrambling. I think it's their natural growth and as you say it looks as if there's two different flowers on the same shrub :)

Yes thats great Hywel yiu let yours scramble too. They look lovely scrambling dont they ? The only reason these past few years I ve had to let it scramble is because I cant get to it and I dont just the others to untangle it now I like it like this I will leave it scramble lol.

Wow..that looks beautiful. I never get around to cutting ours back because the blackbirds build their nest on top of the water barrel in the tangle of clematis.

It’s by the side of the kitchen window so they are quite safe.

What a beautiful clematis Thrup, it's very happy scrambling through your tulip tree. Do you know this is the first year I've cut back my clems, and pleased to say they are all shooting strongly now, I was holding my breath!
