I need some advice on when to prune my hydrangea ?  mine still have drying flowers & leaves at the moment.   Do I just leave them looking "stickey" during winter months?  Should I mulch them before winter, or if not - then when would be best?

would appreciate all advice, "Thankyou" 😊🌹

can someone please help with advice on when I can "trim" my box balls ?  (& should I mulch them now ahead of wintWr, or no time?) I guess they are going dormant now, so just checking if I must wait til the Spring now?  & can you tell me which month?  Also, should they be watered or not during the winter? "Thankyou" 😊🌹

🙋🏼 please may I ask for advice on the type of soil which is best for planting Camassia bulbs & Allium bulbs.  ive bought some online & they are arriving today for me to plant n this Guildford garden, (my daughters) where everything is grown in containers of some sort, because the soil is poor ( a mixture of clay & rubble, left by builders ! 😟).  Is there a speciific "potting soil" for bulbs?    As well, how often should I water them now, during winter months, & when would I start "feeding them" /or not ?   "Thankyou" 😊 🌹  all advice will be most welcome 😃

"Thankyou" so much -
