Height is determined by rootstock Sue. If it's not on the right rootstock it won't grow much bigger than the stated height.

Are they any good?

Chrissy I can't say I've ever found any compost fork any use whatsoever. I've come across many but found there's little substitute for a pulling it all out and putting it back in. I can appreciate an injury, my back isn't what it was, but I just grin and bear it then go and dose up on painkillers for a week.

Totally agree Verdun a good prune and it'll bush nicely.

They do like decent drainage, all Lilly's do. Bulbs are usually planted early spring and flower first year. If you have decently drained soil they'll over winter quote happily in situ. Decent drainage through is key to survival in soil or pots.

Usually done after flowering, light prune only, dead heading and removing damaged wood is the norm. Can't say I come across them that often and not a shrub I really like.

Non flowering nettles are ok, and the only trouble with brambles is the thorns persist and can be equally uncomfortable as fresh brambles.

I think you mean powdery mildew Leila. There are organic solutions which are plentiful with an internet search.

New build lawn, white patches, any ideas?

It's probably because the lawn was laid on top of builders waste. If you lift a section and see what's underneath you'll probably find it. Doubtless it'll be a selection of rubble, bricks waste concrete and other detritus left after they've legged it.
