Child abuse?   Having worked in child protection it's only too obvious (and there is empirical evidence) that abusers are usually people who have been abused.  Children learn what they experience and it's something that's hard to undo.  Couple that with an abuser's need to introduce others into their circle in order not to feel what they're doing is beyond the pale and society's tendency not to address the painful stuff 'cos it's so painful it's something that has just gone on and on unchecked.  

It's not that long ago that people didn't discuss death or cancer or sex  ..... at least if social media has done one good thing it's that people talk about stuff.

Maybe we're lancing the boil at last ......... but it'll probably get worse before it gets better.

Ill cut mine back in March when the next cold snap is over. i leave it until then as the dead stems provide the plant with a little bit of frost protection.

Cut back the stems and remove dead leaves without damaging the crown of the plant.
