or just to the extent of any other shrub/ tree?

rather delayed note to say thanks both.  Will try earlier in the year.  I do like the flowers.  It grows so huge so quickly it does need a good cut back each year.

That's an optional extra Dove - like the extra 10% entry fee and gift aid.

i suppose we shouldn't be yapping about this - just assisting the advertiser. Although think they've got the target audience slightly wrong...

Product already exists. It's called a garden open to the public. Get a season ticket and go and see the plants - no tending necessary.

And the Russian Sage that Artjac introduced me to at Bressingham. Smells gorgeous.  I'll be getting some.

one for Verdun?

when do I cut back my Santolinas?  I did so in spring this year but then had few flowers.  Just googled it and it says spring.  Perhaps I should have done it earlier In spring? (Can't remeber exactly when I did it.) Or maybe should do so now - will it have time for any new growth to harden off, and will it look like an eyesore?

Nasty weeds

Yes, I guess May is the time when its growing most strongly.  I've done it then and wiped most of it out.  Yet at other times it doesn't seem to have much effect. You'lol need to get most of the leaves sprayed ie just getting some assuming that the roots are all interconnected won't work.
