I have a Clematis in the front of my house that is away from the house by like 1 foot or so. it is about 2 years old. It is growing up a fence(v shape fencing)
that I will have to replace due to it growing so much. I was wanting to move it close to house but don't want to kill it when I go to move it closer to the house. Any Suggestion on what I should do ? or should I just leave it alone.
When it dies back this winter, you can cut it low and replace the trellis. I don't think that you have to move it, unless you have a real reason to.
