40 year old clematis

Marie McConn asked 11 years ago

I have (maybe had!?) a 40 year old clematis which did very well for years. It was growing up a wall and wandering through the neighbours hedge at the top. This helped to support it and it gave spectacular flowers. Last Oct/Nov we cut it back as we were doing some work on the nearby wall. I can’t see any leaves on it at all, there were some small little sproutings on the old wood and all of them seem to have withered. Do I have to give up on it? Or is there something else I can try

Clematis normally recovers well from pruing. but there is nothing to do but wait and see.
