Nice views Hosta.

Ladybirds before pruning Dove

Lots of hard work all round.

I cut back a couple of grasses and few other dead bits.

Made tea and cake (marmalade Dove) for visitors, admired some butterflies and heard a frog. First frog seen or heard here for years, must be one of the 'rescue frogs'  from last year.

Worth considering Dove, thank you.

I shall do some further investigation

I think mine used to get a hack back but wait and see what others say, I might not remember accurately

Yes, they're perennial, not sure how hardy they are. I had one for years but it was in a very sheltered place

I think this is within the last couple of days Dove.

They are ahead, they were well above ground on NYD. (As usual) I can't remember when they flower but likely to be May?. Doesn't look good for any sort of flowering this year. 

I think Bob is likely to be right re powdery mildew. I'm wondering about chopping them back but would anything regrow this year and if it didn't would the plant survive?

They are ahead of their usual timetable fidget but it doesn't look like any frost damage I've seen before.

It's not as dry as it has been some years Dave, though we've had nothing like the rain some areas have had. The ponds have filled up, that's ground water and they don't fill every winter.

Does that go away when the plant goes dormant Bob?

These plants have all been affected at the same time, this is a big garden and nothing is closer than 50 yards from either on the others.

I hope so Hosta, but some bits are sort of crispy to touch. 

It's only been noticeable in the last few days.
