Sorry just noticed you said September 

Are they inside or outside?

When did you take them Singy and what conditions have you had them in?

Mine have been warned lily! I'm an avid 'thrower outer' and I'm doing them a favour though they don't realise it!  Keep telling them they'll thank me for it one day when they have to clear out my house ... 

Pruning a Broom

Sue - don't get your hopes up. 

Bridie - as you've probably seen in the earlier posts, there's a limit to how much chopping you can do. Depends how big they are and how small you'd like them to be.You might be better taking a few cuttings to replace the ones you have (bit late now possibly but worth trying) or just removing them, starting afresh with a couple of new plants then keeping them managed in the right way, ie pruned back a bit each year after flowering in springtime.

Hope it's successful Gareth 

Dove - I've never heard of cemeteries being nature reserves. It's rather lovely.

How true Dove. Not anything I'm interested in chatting about.

Talkback: Make a hibernaculum for frogs

I wondered about that too. Would have thought just putting a good layer of compost on soil and then covering etc would have been well enough insulated but cool and damp. With the amount of rainfall we normally get here they'd need a raft by December!

Just remember to mark where they are Stephen so that you don't forget about them!
