If your conservatory is unheated some of your perennial climbers will slowly die down to ground level. Let them do so at their own speed to build up root mass for next year and only cut away the dead growth when the plant has completely died down. With heat climbers such as Rhodochiton atrosanguineum will keep going right through the Winter.
The climbing Alstroemeria – Bomarea caldasii will start to produce large oval green seed pods. These then turn yellow. If you let the seed fall to the ground rather than collecting it for storage over Winter you will find that it readily germinates where it has fallen with no assistance from you.
When Tibouchinas have finally finished flowering you will find that they have become very ‘leggy’. You can now prune back to about half their height leaving some leaves on the lower stems. The plant will then go dormant for the Winter.
