Could we have a photo of what it looks like now? If it only has branches at the top it will looks silly cut off as Welshonion says. If it has branches all the way down you can prune to the shape you want.

Anemone Coronaria

I don't have much success with these. I thought it might be because they get thrown out with weeds but I wonder if I planted too deeply. I can't remember how deeply, I haven't tried them lately.

I don't know what strulch is

That's a shame, a bit rude as well to interview and not let you know

Any time between now and February depending on the type, the weather and where you live. I can see potential flowers on a lot of mine but nothing out yet

That's true Dave.

I think pest proportions is lower for some people than others. I think I'd enjoy swallows and swifts, even if they made a mess. The swallows investigate the she every year but never build. 

We have pipistrelles in the roof most summers. They stink when it's damp and the wind is right but I wouldn't be without them

It's a painful business altogether Berghill, with the grasses, blackthorn, hawthorn, berberis.....................................and the rest

Then there are some of the cotoneasters that get ripped out  of your hands nearly breaking your wrist.

and the dried off eryngiums that leave prickly bits in  clothes that dig into the flesh later.

and the stuff that's a bit wet and gets stuck so it has to be prodded,that's hard on the back and shoulders for one as short  as me.

Phormium leaves are just about the worst thing for shredders.The flower stems go through OK though
