Who's poo?

That could be hedgehog poo too, it's just that the hedgehog has bean eating something that has resulted in a softer poo.  


We once spilled a pile of sunflower hearts and the hogs hoovered them up resulting in  soft grey poos in the garden that night.

Don't just lop a bit off the ends - you'll end up with a yellow shaving brush next spring.  


Choose the oldest branches and take out a few as low down as possible, where they branch off from the main plant.  Do it when the flowers have faded and not later.  The plant will grow some replacement branches which will flower next year.
