That will mean I will be 93 when it flowers!

Thank you dovefromabove.  I think layering will be impossible from a 20ft high tree.   followed your link and it will be better to buy a plant.

The worst down here in town is Wilkinsons.  More dead and dying plants than live.  I do not know why they sell "plants".

Thanks everyone, especially Verdun.  Doubt that my brown one is a sedge as it trails?

To be honest I cannot remember varieties Verdun!  Sorry.  All keep their growth and leaves all winter and the pots are on gravel.  I have one miniature bamboo, one grass stays brown and another is Elija (?) blue, others have trailing variegrated leaves.  I apologise for my lack of knowledge.

Thanks to all. Apart from Tina, all seem agreed.  Wait a few months.

I have several varieties in pots.  When should I trim them and by how much?

Many have been in the same compost for years.  Should I repot and when?
