What about doing the Dove bit,then in June July take some good cuttings then late next winter or early spring a complete hair cut to base for a nice new plant by that time your cuttings would replace any problems which i dont think you will get as hydrangeas are tuff cookies. just a thought,

Hi Elisnor, youv  probebly  done the plant a favour, leaving the dead heads on Mopheads gives some frost protection, remove dead heads in early spring down to first strong healthy pair of buds.   Lacecaps are hardier they can be cut back to the second pair of leaves below the head after flowering in order to stop seeds developing, once the plants are established cut out one or two older stems to encourage more growth,if they have been neglected cut all down to base for a new plant however no flowers till the following year, other types vary

Hi Rosie,let me make myself clear i never have nor ever will hurt an animal of any kind,Right at our last house we spent hundreds of pounds on fencing to keep the cats out,we could not fence the front so we slated it,the new owner tells me he has now  built a wall, my partner Kate was almost in tears watching her nice garden being destroyed on a daily basis as well as having 3 beautiful slow worm killed,  so we tried the Jeyes ready mixed spray on the surrounds of the borders, we did this every other day for a weekish, if we planted anything we gave a little spray around the newly dug area as the cats love freshly dug soil, making sure the spray did not touch the plants, the visits halved in one week then stopped , we sprayed once a fortnight and had only 2 visits in 3 months, i also sprayed across all the driveway entrance and the cats would sniff it and walk on, No cats hurt as they just dont like the smell, i do understand its Not the cats fault, and at the moment our very nice neighbour has just purchased a nice tom so were trying the next door neighbour friend who feeds me sometimes way, hope it works as he,ll be round soon ,i find this ok as i get his company but Dug next door gets the bills   

hope this helps Rosie we know how you feel but they can be deterred without tears or harm good luck

Hi Mike, i understand your question and the concern from other readers,i think once people get used to your name and get to sort of know you then they dont mind as  a bit of info on bargains is good as the others said, Like at the moment i cant get into the garage to make anything so iv noticed a really good looking Mason Bee  HoteL for £20 that im sure others will be interested in,it can be easily taken to pieces in summer to clean looks like a swiss chalet iv got to have one, hope sombody has a look and agrees its a bargain, good luck all,and thanks Dove for the hedgehog info soon as i can im building a couple,in the meantime the dog foods on shopping list,anybody want a dog biscuit,
