Looks like that's got some decent seeds forming. 2 years ago I got one to grow from a seed head like this for the first time ever!

@jeatacake I’m taking it from that they’re difficult to grow from seed then? I wouldn’t mind trying though 😜 are they ready to stick in compost now?

I've found it difficult (& cuttings of them impossible!) I'd let them get a tinge of brown first. What I did was to lay the whole seed head on the compost & covered it with about 5 mm of grit & next spring, one seedling emerged! It was from my mum's too! 😊

@jeatacake that’s great it was from your mums ☺️ they do sound like fussy things to grow yourself though 😜 I shall take your advice and see how we go 😛 thanks Jeff 🙏🏻

@keezooluk clematis is one of my favorite. I have 2 and just now figured out what one was and the group it belongs to. Still scratching my head thinking about pruning it.

@ReginaSanders they have such beautiful flowers don’t they 😍 I must admit I have little clue about pruning them. I did it wrong with most of mine so haven’t had many flowers so far so this year I’ve left them all alone to see what happens. It’s all very confusing isn’t it 😂

@keezooluk I have done so much research but the only thing I learned is I need to get the group you give a hard prune late winter/early spring. Or as soon as you see a little life.

@ReginaSanders are yours well established plants? All mine are still tiny so if I hard prune now I’d have nothing left 😂

@keezooluk I have a purple one I've had 3 years and it's literally been ripped out of it's pot 7 times by my dog and my cousins dog. Poor thing is still kicking. I've never trimmed it. Still trying to figure out what it is. The other one I got for my birthday in July. It was pretty good size but I had to repot it and I don't think that pots big enough. 👎it's a Miss Bateman. I'll sure keep you posted.

@ReginaSanders the Miss Bateman one is beautiful 😍 I look forward to seeing photos when you post them 😁 maybe with the purple one it might be worth pruning some of the plant and leaving some old growth. At least then you can see what works best and if you do make a mistake you won’t affect the whole plant 🤔

@gjones it’s so much nicer than I expected. Small flowers too but love the pure white. Hoping it’ll mix with my pink bougainvillea 😍
