Have a feeling it's UNDER watering Steve.  

I will prune during winter......I tip shoots,remove  weak shoots and dead stuff.  Every winter I try to keep plants compact by spurring side branches.

Artjak and Ginglygangly, my buzz Ivory is in the ground. It's white ...the flowers more full than usual Davidii.  I posted a pic on camera corner recently ....one flower had couple of butterflies on it.

I think it needs to be in the  ground in good soil.

I do just that too......not bothered about things flowering now so much as preparing new plants for next year.

KEF, I think it's short lived.  To keep it flowering and encourage its "perennialism" (?) Anchusa should be dead headed religiously.  A few years ago I did just that  and managed to keep it for 2 years or so.  Not sure I would dig it up now unless it's recently planted.  Anchusa can flower itself to death I think so as soon as flowers look as though they're fading nip them out.

Hiya Woody. ,yes you are spot on.  

Cant grow  everything ....want more ...even more ......colour right now but conscious of the balance too with grasses and to maintain a good ratio.  However, another helenium,or two and couple of gaillardias can be incorporated.
