I have got two Autumn flowering chrythamums I planted nearly 2 years ago and they are getting too big. I have been told that I should have cut them back when they had finished flowering. 

When do I do this?  (as they had flowers for most of the winter) and do I just hack them down to the ground or what?

As you can see my fingers are not very green.

Thanks all.

help please as regards my dog

gran, have you got one of those thingys that holds the food/water bowls a bit higher? just thinking, if he has ear ache, he might not want to lower his head to drink

If not. You could try putting his food and water bowls on top of a small up-turned box.

Bonkers weather

Frank......That reminded me so much of my mum. She used to say there were children in the house and we had to chase them out. She was convinced that a policeman came every night to make sure she was alright.

She had an imaginary friend, for about 6 months, called Billy, who went everywhere with her. She even had to lay a place at the table for him at meal times.

We asked her GP if we should 'go along with her' or tell her that they don't exist. GP said there was no point trying to tell her they don't exist. To her they are VERY real.

How has this happened?

One of my Sunflowers did not grow as big as the other two, but has surprised me by having three heads.

Any one know why this has happened?

Verdun I'm glad your mum's picking up. If she is anything like me, having her glasses back will make her feel a lot better. I have worn mine all the time since I was 5 Years old, (50 years ago) and without them I am disoriented.

Verdun good that you're getting your mum moved. Make sure you keep a copy of everything. I don't need to tell you how things can get lost. 

Also send a report to the QCQ as pointed out by Dove.
