Morning all.

Lovely Winter sunshine again today, but b####y freezing.

More bulbs to plant today, when I can summon up the enthusiasm to go outside.

I would leave them, the stems look nice frosted. Cut them back in Spring.

Sea Hollies [ Eryngium ] are hard to divide, as they have a long tap root.

I am not quite sure how you will manage to get a crop of seed pods by next Spring, the Poppies will flower in the Summer.

Morning all

Sunny but cold here, not sure whether it is Autumn or Winter.

Tidying up ready for the cleaner!

Glad Shadow may be sorted DD, I found myself getting upset thinking about what might happen and then looking at his gorgeous picture.

Your enthusiasm will ensure a great result. All gardening is trial and error, most of us do not get it how we want it for years, if ever.

And I thought Sheffield traffic was bad Hosta.

Leylandii any good for wildlife?

I really like Ameliancher as a small tree. Flowers in Spring, graet Autumn colour and berries for the birds.

Leylandii any good for wildlife?

As with above comments, I think it is so vital to have cover for the small birds to hide in. I am lucky to have several old yew trees surrounding the garden, but I am sure that leylandii could serve the same purpose. Leylandii maybe gets a worse press than it deserves.
