What Would Be Cutting Just the Clematis Off

Anonymous added on June 5, 2011 | Answered

The last two years I have been watching my clematis being cut off at the ground level. They do not eat the plant, they just get cut off. I am not able to find anything. They do not eat my morning glories. Help please. I don't know what to do.
