Quite windy here in Gloucestershire, sun is a ball of orangey red through the grey cloud. Strange atmosphere !

name and how to prune

I don't know what sort of pets you have, but if they've never shown an interest in it before by chewing it or eating the seeds, I wouldn't worry. However, if it does bother you take it out ( with care re: the sap, wear long sleeved clothing & gloves & don't rub your eyes !! ). I always think that if you take an old plant out, think of the planting opportunities you make ! 

Which plant for this corner?

Shrubby salvia e.g. Royal Bumble?

Presumably as it's a euphorbia, jacqueline would need to take care regarding the sap when pruning?

I have picked up this thread, as I have 3 eryngium of the same variety and don't know the best thing to do with them. Some of the leaves are starting to turn yellow and I don't know whether to plant them now or keep in a cold frame over winter.Any advice greatfully received

Hi GWRS, simply it gives them a type of bone disease. This affects the bone density & leaves them unable to stand up with ease and vunerable to predators.

will give to more info - the trouble is, like me with crisps, they love mealworms & will eat as many as they can even though they're no good for them !

Tulips and wallflowers

I'll certainly look into doing that - I'm planning to remove the summer bedding by the end of this week, so I'll have more idea of the room to manoeuvre !

Thanks B3, I think that's what I'll have to do, the tulips will be in one large area with the wallflowers around the outside, as opposed to being merged together. The bulbs have arrived and look really healthy so I'm hoping for a good show !

Thanks again
