Morning Wootie 

wait a while yet. 

Its pretty cold right now with frost in many places so another couple of weeks' delay would be sensible. 

(Assuming you have the usual mopheads/lacecaps)

Sammymummy, yes, clean it up for appearance sake if nothing else.  It will damage new shoots and buds if left 

Foxes visit here...don't see much evidence though apart from a calling card now and then on my heathers.

far more fox-wise people here than I am but do foxes attack flower buds, etc.?  Prob something else is the culprit?  

Be interested in others' replies

Dismaying Dairymay.    So annoying when they do that.    When people use the word "nice"'s far removed from its original meaning.  I cannot sleep because of it .  saying tv instead of television drives me bonkers . And car instead of automobile......well I need to see a "shrink", er psychiatrist, to help me cope with it worse still....when, people, put too,,,, many commas in, their sentences!!!   Wot (oooo, what) is the world coming too?    Finally, when the tv newscaster reports of  the terrors in Syria why does he wear a tie that doesn't match his suit?  Not food form...not good form at all

Nick, as with many plants, remove spent flowerheads to prolong flowering . It smartens them up too.
