Herbaceous paeonies die back in winter.

The woody ones (tree paeonies) act as deciduous shrubs.

Anything leafy will not survive the frost but if it's a hardy one it will all come back next year

Anyone done any gardening today?

picked sticks from all round the garden and made an enormous shredding heap.

Oh no, not more shredding

good book that one Jo.

I think my H. p is more likely to die than get that big Verdun. It isn't happy.

Petiolaris will cling to a tree. Nice one at Beth Chatto's garden. Less nice one in my garden, it doesn't like the soil it's in

Cotoneasters are some of the easiest shrubs to please

population explosion of voles - help

You've probably got mine Tetley, we've had the population explosion, less now. 

Mowing some areas is like riding a bucking horse. The holes get bigger all the time from use by various beasties plus some erosion

2m is near enough. That will stop quite a bit of wind.  Short stakes are OK, the top can flap around as long as the roots don't.
