I cut mine down to a few inches, all of it, but it's up to you, we all do it differently.

Aym in late summer and autumn all that lot will be finished then it's full of hot colours. Hoping to delay the Tithonia until I need it.

What plans or changes do you have for your garden this year?

I'd say it's Lovely Lyn's vision of heaven, my vision of ..... the other place.

Each to their own eh?

 Too posh for me Hosta,  I don't like anything laid out as regimental as that, mine's just a rambling cottage garden with whatever will grow in it, do like tubs and baskets on the patio though but only pink blue and lavender colours. Yellows and orange are far to gaudy on the patio, not restful.

Having said that, I have set those Tithonia seeds as above, the cottage garden beds turn to hot clolours  in the late summer.

this is more me in the Spring, unless I've jumped to conclusions and you know another Lyn😳.

Is that an American site, I couldn't put the date in, back to front like in US, so 3.9.2017 instead of 9.3.2017 !

And you, AYM, very busy today, so much to do!πŸ˜€

Is this fair?

Hope you get your greenhouse up ok Linda. We are renewing broken panes in ours, every time I look, I see another cracked pane, still cheaper than buying new GH's though. (OH is fed up with itπŸ˜€) 

My garden hasn't kept me sane over the past year or so, quite the reverse, it's been a constant worry, , but I'm back on track this year and raring to go.

That's the only variety that far ahead. Most of the others are still fast asleep.
