If you are fit and able you can do it yourself for less than 20.00 per year, but if your not, then it is worth it.

Dont worry about, mine bloom  all year through. Cut of the dead flowers and they will go on. Chop the whole plant right back to the ground about May when they finish flowering, they will soon be up again.

I dead head as much as poss, been a bit difficult at the moment with family, but, yes, thats the way to keep them going. Once they produce seed they think their job is done and they will start to die. They like rough ground and not much feed because that will bring them up to quickly,

The way to get then to flower until autumn is to not let them flower til august,  it was probably me that said it. I like them to grow to about six ft or more then flower at the back of the border. 

Time for the compost bin for yours and get your spring bulbs in.
