Hydrangea Recommendation

You can keep any down to 2 metres, just prune them every year, I have a long row of them. just ordinary, not  Paniculata, in complete shade, they love it, they stay damp there.

Thank you, I also love the Fluffy Duffy, she looks a very placid dog.

overwintering Dhalias

I grow Bishops Children from seed, it’s amaing how big the tubers are now, I have brought the ones I grew in big tubs, into the greenhouse while the soil drys off on them then, when they are dry, i will wrap them in newspaper and store till next year, the ones in the garden stay out with a big pile of home made compost on the top. 

I wonder if the OP has those tiny ones they sell in supermarkets, if they were full sized dahlias they would have made tubers. If so, I would dump them and start again next year.

Shan't be using Crocus again

Just get onto your credit card company and tell them what’s happened, they will refund your money.

have you checked that the money has gone out from your card? Maybe you didn’t complete all of the order instructions, there’s usually a conformation email from them.

next year try J. Parker, very good for bulbs, reasonable prices, half the postage cost of Crocus. I’ve bought from them for many years, never disappointed.

You need to grow this one, if you have an upright one, no amount of pruning will make it grow flat.

We always cut ours with the hedge trimmer, any cut leaves soon turn brown and then drop off in a few days so you wouldn’t know any difference. Would be there for a long time with secateurs.

Wish they’d bed down somewhere here, b!!!!y things are very active come winter,  funny to watch antics on bird feeders though.
