Morning Punkdoc.......

just a blip methinks.  Dark, gloomy following christmas but, what can we do?  

Think of your holiday to  come.....

days drawing out so we can plan our planting, maybe try a new plant or two......

count ourselves lucky we don't live elsewhere........

realise we can cope and thrive........

me?  Plants coming today.  Seeing my new great niece again....she symbolises that life goes on. she forces a smile and a smile is all thst's needed 

whatever Punkdoc, perhaps surveying your "kingdom", we all need just a little nudge to see something brighter. Enjoy your day 

It's my birthday

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

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

Disagree with JIMMY but that's ok.  Respect to his views and we move on.  We take no offence, we ignore or we agree with anyone's post. good start for our forum intentions from now on

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
