If cutting it right back all in one go sounds scary your wife could cut a couple of stems back this spring hoping that they sprout from lower down and then do the rest the following spring.

Little leaves in the corners of your green house are forget-me-nots - dig them up and put them outside with some tulip bulbs - will look lovely in late spring. Would also put in some bulbs for early colour. Also this month's issue of gw mag has a great offer on perennials!

In the greenhouse I'd give it a good wash out and dig over, put some chicken manure pellets in and plant lots of lettuce seeds, winter density and gem are good and should survive the cold.

Then tuck yourself up with a cup of tea and big pile of gardening books.
