Nicola, solanum is easily pruned in spring.  I grow album the white one and it flowers forever here.  Lovely,thing when smothered in bloom.  Only thing against pyracantha is it's viciousness.  It's thorns are long and dangerous.  Not a nice thing to bump into or brush against.  Another honeysuckle, jasmine, solanum or clemaris montana there for me.

Ornamental Grasses

So goldcroft, we need to know which varieties you have.

Some grasses can be killed by winter pruning......even down here where it's mild.  Ditto with division at this time of year.....grasses simply do not make new roots in cold soils so sulk and can rot.  Nothing to lose by delaying for few weeks but everything to gain my opinion 

For hellebore enthusiasts.
