I always reduce mine by at least a half in autumn or they get blown out of the ground.
Then I take some more off in spring, or later if I want a later flowering
Good to see I'm not alone in not being able to quote
I was talking about this with a nursery man who told me it was a natural hybrid and very variable. He may not be right about the nature of the plant but I have observed the variabilty in many gardens.
What did you find?
That looks very unwell , maybe terminally ill. Given the lack of elegance in shape and the appearance of the leaves, I'd have that through the shredder soon
It doesn't always get that tall MFent. None of mine are taller that 2ft 6in after many years, they spread but don't get tall. It's very variable. I should like to get hold of one of the taller ones
Can we have some more photos please, cow parsley is an early flowerer and that looks as though it's coming up to flower
I can't see and can't enlarge it lea. Can you do a shot of the leaves and stems?
Yeah, how rude of me, hello Harmac
