Nadger, two options.  Cut down to leave a sit on maybe?  or longer to 5 or 6' to provide part of a framework for a climber ((I did this for clematis montanna)

or use a grinder.  You can use the grindings as a mulch and you will have space to plant a new border

Ordering snowdrops today....for me and for a friend.  

Keep the forum as it is I think.     It works well for most of the time.

Well done Andy.  

If you decide to plant the replacement I would wait to see how your original plant responds.  If it does plant the replacement out in the garden without manure but added pine bark needles or ericaceous compost
