Nut, I cut mine hard every year but it is not the most attractive plant in fhe world.  However, many do like it.  For me it sets off other stuff......a ceratostigma looks good with it as do many others

Help with preparing soil

If it's a choice between manure and bonemeal Catherine I would go for manure. 

I may well be in the minority here but I never apply bonemeal except as part of a balanced fertiliser like fish blood and bone.

4 cd cases with 180 in each case Fairy?  Blimey that's nearly a million 

gone tidy crazy.....cut cannas down (still in flower) last of the dead dahlia stems,,old foliage of crocosmias and the last of the miscanthus.  They need a rest and a mulch besides they will all be shooting again in 4 or 5 weeks. 

Cloudy and dull but warm and dry.
