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,
