if I was advising I would say cut solanum in spring. However, impulsive and impetuous fellow that I am, I decided to "neaten" things up now....job done. Yes, it does grow "like the clappers" .......15 ' high or more high and wide....so all the more reason to trim it now. Besides down here autumn pruning is safe. Not keen on the blue solanum but the white is a classy plant I think.
well, "very warm" again this afternoon.......context of mid October and prob 18 degrees in the garden. 18 degrees in the summer is cool. 18 degrees in January would be roasting. All relative.
got the bug now....to start cutting stuff back. Couple of heleniums, agastaches, acteas, some of the rudbeckias, etc., However, no great loss with miscanthus and cannas, salvias putting out more and more flowers now. I like the garden tidy in winter.....structure then shows through.
Divided croc lucifer and my nosey neighbour emerged. Sure she is spying on me with binoculars. "Can I have a bit?" She pleaded. "Sorry no" I (wanted to say). She went off with a couple of large clumps
want to re site hydrangea kyushu but not sure where yet
