How to choose and hire a landscape gardener

I think you are doing right there Domino man, if he is a good bloke he will respect your wishes and go with what you want, ask about supply, he may be able to get trade prices. Ask for references so you don't get a bodge job, or ask around for recommendations.

I could have done with one of those today, just attacked the rambling rose, miles of it, he is going to be so pleased when he gets home and I ask him to pick it!

I used to prune hard in the autumn where we used to live, about six miles from here, wouldnt risk it here though, just do a trim.

Definitely Verdun, if it's somehow found its way here from USA we don't want them spreading.

I have had them like that, took a chain saw to them and they shoot out everywhere next year.

June can't prune flower stalks she would need a ladder, but it definitely needs coming down,  I have pruned autumn and Spring, it doesn't make much difference here, only that I get bigger flowers with an autumn prune, but if you are in a cold area it's best to wait till spring.

What did the flower look like, that seems very big for a seed head.

are the seeds dry and rattle when you shake the pod, if not they are not ready yet to be sown.

I think you may get better results if you put this on the seed swap thread. Andy,
