get rid of whatever membrane you have....awful soil killing and ugly.  Membrane should be banned from garden borders 

dig over and remove everything you have there.  Clean plants thoroughly and pot them up whilst you attend to the sorting out.

a rockery only looks good if done properly....same sort of stone, partially in the soil, and all facing same way.   Otherwise re comsider your options Rickh.....what else would you like there?  A mound of soil and planted well and subsequently mulched well can look superb

For sure Flora, cut them down hard to lowest shoots near the ground. 

You will lose early flowers but they will flower longer

Nah!  this is feather dusters.

as long as everyone knows nothing is personal, perverse or deliberately offensive the forum needs some challenging posts

Sorry Dean, no chance with the pieris.  The camelia is a possibility but ???

B3, I am itching....itching to annoy or puzzle...but the shackles are on.    I think the forum was better with banter and fizz.  Feels a slumbering forum right now but maybe this will stir the devil in someone
