Yes, in gh cut them back to make them bushy.  Ok to do it now. Not too critical .....there should be plenty of shoots further down so,cut to those.  Use the cuttings .....well, for cuttings.

Lovely warm day.  Will apply nematodes to veg patch after another cuppa.  My promised lunch out did not materialise but a delicious mushroom omelette was provided instead.  It was a case of wait a while to eat or eat NOW.  

 

Talkback: What to prune in spring

Posted: 07/03/2015 at 08:35

Mine are pruned in autumn here in Cornwall ...and anything not done will be pruned now.  However, end of March is best in England!  

Miranda, you don't say which salvias but the micryophylla ...shrubby, Woody varieties.....types are quite hardy.  Same pruning as for fuschias for me.

It's my birthday

Japanese anenome

Go for wild swan instead of the jap anemone type.  Better flowers, longer lasting and utterly beautiful 

Slug..... Or is it ?

But I have seen a worm 3' long with a zig zag on its back and it was quite scary.
