Hi Sallya

I'd cut it back hard now - new fences are expensive (I speak from experience) - and give it some Fish, Blood and Bone.  I'm pretty convinced it'll flower fine in the summer, but even if it misses a year it's better than a new fence

Advice on weed burners please..

the salt and vinegar goes on the weeds, in cracks , not into flower beds etc

And when it rains it runs off into the flower beds

Morning all. Dove, methinks foot shooting  !!!!  ...

Ah, but I got what I wanted, a feisty individual with a strong character for a daughter - there have been times when I thought, 'What have I done???'   But she's turned out absolutely great in the end - things definitely improved when she discovered gardening

Morning Hosta, Wonky, Hazel, Clari and the rest of you ((hugs))
