I have the above plant and I badly pruned it last Autumn, is it to late to prune it back hard, i have read that I can prune it back to about 20cm in March so was wondering should  I leave it until next spring.  I didn't realise that it grew so big and it is at the front of our house and grew to the window, so thought I would move it to the back garden, when will I be able to do this.  

regards Chris

Hi

thanks for your response, we did lay some fabric down but it so strong it even grew through a tarmac path that the orginal owners have laid.  The problem is that it is so damp but with this drainage we are laying, we are taking out about 5 tons of soil to level the garden off it is very which damp not good at all, hopefully this will take out a great deal of roots and with some new fresh top soil we may have a chance to keep it at bay.  Thanks again for you response.

regards Chris

<span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 16px; background-color: #f2f2f2;">Hi We moved into our house 3 years ago and have been modernising it. We are now in the process of completely landscaping our semi-detached corner plot garden. The house was build in 1935 and so the garden is very matured. Unfortunately the garden is (we think) below the water table and is very wet in areas and doesn't drain off and the lawn never drys off in areas even on hot days. We have decided to completely strip the garden and lay drains and remodel the garden and lawn. One problem we have it Horsetail weed, at the moment we have a digger and it is moving and levelling off the lawn to relay and lay a patio. My question is while the earth is up and being turned over what chemical can we use to help to get rid of this pesky weed. Please help regards Chris
