Morning Verdun, have just looked up your Heuchera raspberry jam and came across this site, but maybe you know it already. Wish I lived in UK, would be buying each of them!

Never knew that there were so many varieties!

Trollius Alabaster - what, when and how to prune?

I would say "cut down to the ground and shear the whole plant" is 6 of one and a half dozen of the other! I would cut it back to about 2 inches from the ground. According to the RHS, it should then grow new leaves and flower again next year.

worst job in garden

My pet hates are the same as nutcutlet's and sara's, collecting piles of weeds and taking them to the compost bin. OH complains I always leave the heaps right where he has to walk, and looking for tools deposited around the house. He has painted all the handles of mine a bright yellow so that I can see them from a mile away!

Well, that's a revelation! No wonder mine kept dying when I planted them in my border. Will try again with the right compost! Thanks IDGM and Verdun!

Just posted this to Gail Peacock:

We got rid of ours with glyphosate, double dosage!. First chopped it all down and after that sprayed/filled the hollow stalks and every little leaf that dared to show itself. Took two Spring/Summers but it has definitely disappeared and never came back. Good luck!
