Morning Stacey - aren't the lighter mornings wonderful. Hope toothache soon subsides  ... Think that smilie looks like it has toothache!

Morning Pinkie too - you sneaked in there.

About to Prune established cornus to the base

When you say "right down to the base" does that mean leaving a couple of inch stems sticking out, or really so that you can see nothing at all when you have finished? Do the new stems break from underground like a perennial, or from buds on an existing branch, like a rose?

am about to tackle this for the first time on 3 year old midwinter fires, and don't really know what i am doing

Morning Pam and Archie.  Just done my greenhouse dash, so irises should now be ok til the weekend. Gosh we had some rain last night - thought it was going to come through the roof at one point!  Gotta dash - hope you all have a good day.
