I don't grow these but I've seen them looking very straggley toward the end of summer. Maybe they need a haircut now and again. I'm sure someone will know how to deal with them

If you want to be inclusive leave out Royal and Society whether you have the right to them or not. You won't bring the youngsters in words like that
