When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

26 Feb 2019 • It may seem brutal but #spiraeajaponica really benefit from being pruned hard in early spring. They flower on new growth and there will be lots of that soon 😃

What app do you use? Pictures look excellent. I can't find an app to do that! Bit of a technophob...

I completely forgot to do it last year so thought I should get on and do it once it had occurred to me to 🙄 Did you have a good hack? @sieveheadsarah

Mine needed more of a lop than a snip Kathryn 😉 @katgreen

As long as there are some buds you can go as low as about 6” and it will love you for it Celina @cee

Hi Dermot, I use Pic Collage. I used the free version for ages (and several others) but eventually coughed up the price of the advert-free version as I really like it. It’s very easy to use too 👍 @Froggy45
