Bowled Mauve

I take cuttings every year from my Bowles Mauve, but you have to pinch out the middles from the earliest opportunity. They send out sde shoots and soon become a bushy plant,  you could try cutting yours down by half, it will shoot out then.

That was a fertiliser, I wouldn't use any more or you'll have no grass at all. Take the opportunity to give a good spiking and just leave it for this year.

I agree with Pete, if you were to grow them from seeds, you only get one shoot that you keep pinching out until you get a good plant.

Looking after an Aruncus

I bought three of these from J.Parkers sale about four years ago, I couldn't believe how big they grew, the flower spikes are about five feet tall, and the plants are huge, they happened to be two whites and a pink one.

They are in full sun all day, never been watered or fed apart from mulched in the Autumn. I cut the flower stalks off when they get so tatty I can't bear them anymore.😀

Had a storm last night that went on for two hours, apparently was 76 strikes per minute. Although it was in Plymouth Sound, these good view was from St Austell about 30 miles away. Was also seen very well from Exmoor.

Oops,  wrong vid, will come back in a mo😀

I haven't got that particular one, just a bog standard yellow, and a peachy coloured one, neither grow that big, even though the yellow has been in the ground for five years.
