Removing Seed Pod and Also Cutting Back a Clematis

2drkchoc added on August 13, 2017 | Answered

now that my butterfly weed plants have beautifully covered the planting bed I am wondering if it is alright to remove the seed pods as I do not have room for more plants popping up. I have and older clematis that blooms in spring and occasionally a bloom or two in summer it is getting unruly if cut back down to about 18\" will it do harm?
