I have one I propagated from a supermarket bunch was thinking of leaving in the garden as I have quite a sheltered Bristol Garden but it sounds like I should bring it indoors. Should I let it dry out and die down or just keep it going with a little water when it drys out?

My 4 year old Fritillaria imperialis has this year been totally stripped of every leaf and flower and looks like a massacred green stalk. Is this the end for it? Done well in my garden for several years and never been eaten like this. Is it sluggs or lilly beetles?

Im thinking of getting one for my small garden. I usually use my radiators for heat but with variying success.

Finally there was a clear day here in Bristol so the Grape vine has been pruned. Hopefully the haircut will not cause it to pop its clogs. Got about 3/4 of a waste bag full of branches.

It hasn't flowered for year. My plan was to prune it back to the new shoots coming from the old wood to improve the look of it but am unsure of what time of year to do it.

Pruning lavender now?

hi,

I have an quite neglected lavender (ice blue I think it might be called) that seems to have decided to start to sprout from the hardwood. As it looks quite bad should I give it a trim now or hold off till the spring?
