Winter my avator is a Yucca in flower.

I had it in a 3' border between the lawn and the path, we didn't have any pets or little people who could get injured, eventually after about ten years I had to cut the tips off new growth to prevent us being attacked by it, not a great look  It produced new plants each year that I carefully removed. It developed something that looked like rust so it went to plant heaven last year

Good morning, slight frost here 5C and down to 1C in GH overnight  Luckily I had heard forecast and put fleece over some plants.

Runny yes my spuds are through I had topped them up so they are okay after the frost.

DD your garden is looking great.

Dicentra alba, mine likes semi shade and moisture it grows as well as the ordinary pink/white one and the new to me last year Valentine is happy there.

Hosta I hope your chillies are okay mine are still in the conservatory.

Well done Verdun

Radish for your meal tonight Runny 

Thanks all, I have recovered from my slobber trauma  I know about Elder Abuse can you complain about dog abuse to small in height peeps

It's been blowing like billio here and been raining heavily for the last couple of hour

My Agastache Mexicana red fortune has survived a Yorkshire winter and the back up is growing well in the GH.

Well pleased that Anchusa Lodden Royalist has also survived and is re- growing 

Dicentra are emerging and delphinium Fidget are romping away as are Barlow fidget black aquilegia 

Have topped up my spud bags so they are growing well & purple sprouting broccoli with today's meal. 

Lovely time of the year. 

Have a good evening all

Nut's reply was :

The branches will not regrow. I'd take the stumps off back to the trunk, and see what it looks like then
