I would wait for a drier spell nearer to spring.  Too wet and cold,right now I think

No peanuts do full pruning now.  

You can prune in spring or autumn but I prefer autumn that's all

I cut mine back hard every year.....always in the autumn for me.  

Three reasons.......firstly it keeps bush compact.  It keeps rust at bay......rust can be a problem on old branches.  It encourages great flowering on a vigorous bush.

Hiya punkdoc, hopefully all will be well.  It's been one awful winter for everyone hasn't it?  So much uncertainty not knowing what further surprises mother nature will provide

I guess we will see what you guys look like soon. 

Spring is getting closer.

I guess March is spring for me.  

Because we have had no cold weather yet I now think we may have a late spring with a cold spell arriving next week or so.

Hello FORKERS

Dove, used to love Cheers.  A classic. 

Been nice today but storm coming again. 

Slight issue at foodbank........ungrateful guy demanding so much that I lost it a little.  Told him we weren't a market. (he wanted to exchange some of his goodies for more expensive ones.) and that his food is free so he can't demand anything.  (well, someone asked for a rant earlier so that's mine )

Gardenbug,

I would,try for as sunny a position as possible. In  a shady position it would likely be more lanky growing I think.  More fruit in sun and more bushy
