Top wind speed recorded today was 81 mph so far.  Our one and only train line is closed because of a fallen tree on the track. An articulated (very clever ) lorry has blown over, and loads of debris everywhere.  Sunny right now and dry but those pesky winds are not abating.

Jekyl, I am talking about the PANICULATA ...the PG's......hydrangeas.  The description said Butterfly a variety of paniculata. 

Paniculatas are pruned hard as you like or less according to how big you want your flowers to be.  Your macrophyllas just need old flower heads removed as you say.  Cut to the ground and you will lose the flowers this year

Hiya Cranlan.  Warm welcome 

would you ???

no contest Steve.  Get rid of that poor imitation of grass.  if growing well and looking good I would always have grass in my garden but what you have is hard work for an ugly looking spot.

you have it dry shade (those oaks) or damp shade?  put some beautiful plants there to give you pleasure all year round with some individual specials to lift your spirits.

How can you STILL not be paid Clari?  You seem remarkably calm about the whole thing.  Who writes the cheques?  Enjoy your day anyway. 

the wind sounds horrendous out there .....getting worse I think
