    Last year's clematis and buddleia cuttings are looking well, should i put them outside now or wait until the frosts are done?

    If you've got time to faff about, you could harden them off gradually. In out, in out, shake it all about :heehee: If not, I'd keep them under cover for now.

        Here again, sorry, what do i do with the clematis cuttings? They seem to be taking off, do i keep cutting them to keep them small, let them grow and put canes in the pots? They seem to have a strong root system.

          Hiya Mazambo, excellent :)
          I would pot on, one size bigger, and use thin canes forming a tripod. I would pinch shoots to make them produce more. They will make a lot of growth in spring so be ready to pot on again then. :)

            @Verdun @Spruce thanks I'll pinch them out. I'd like to keep one they have a lovely big white flower, the others I'll give to the local community garden.

              Pinched out and canes, just need a few more canes to finish off.
