So sorry to hear of your experience Chris.

I would endorse Philippa's comments. Itwould be interesting to  hear of RHS response in due course.

It seems to be a 'good' year   for mare's tail- mine is creeping nearer and nearer the house! I believe that in Germany? it is gathered into bunches and sold  on market stalls as a pan scourer.

I'm not growing any at present, but used to water at mid -day. The gentle watering caused the pollen to move and set. It certainly  worked.Another tip is to grow the beans with a few sweet pea plants this should encourage more bees and hoverflys.

I too live in N.E. England and have never had any  problems overwiintering.They flower profusely and are always admired. Unlike chicky's plants they have a way to go yet before flowering this year. At the end of the flowering season I don't worry about tidying them up too much before spring

I  think you could safely reduce the length of the branches by half. I guess you will loose all of the leave,but not to worry keep it well waterered and you will soon be seeing green shoots!

One wayI've tried with dandelions is to sprinkle  a little salt into the centre of the plant, easily done, the catch is  that it has to be done in a dry spell.If you don't think it will rain  overnight  give it a try!
