Should I cut off the whirls left on the clematis after flowers have dropped? I have a clematis called Rebecca and it has produced lovely flowers. It has left whirls after flowers dropped. Do I cut these off or leave them?

It is a good idea to remove the seedheads left after the flowers drop, because this will encourage the plant to produce more flowers. However, many people consider clematis seedheads beautiful in themselves so leaving them on the plant is also an option.
