Yours are probably flowering before I start cutting Verdun

Come to think of it mine are often flowering before I start cutting

I thinks its's what most of us do jenny, there's not much life left in the old leaves by the new year and new leaves come with, or just after, the flowers. 

I do mine around the turn of the year if I get round to it. The ones I do look better than the ones I don't.

My armandii seems enormous, but it's a midget compared to one in a garden I used to work in.

I can't see an armandii ever looking great in a pot, especially one as small as that. I think it's done well (or you've done well) to get that far

it's not a Brussels sprout but it's in the brassicas family. 

Some seeds with the word sprout in the name are 'sprouting seeds' you eat the  sprouted (germinated) seeds when the shoots are small. grown in jars.

Very wildlife friendly with all the logs and planting and stones watery. I like that.

Light or shade?

Agree with treehugger.

I had a Physocarpus, something Gold. It was stunning for a week or two early in the season and then the both boring shrub in the garden

I should think you have to start when it's very young and bendy.
