Just restarted gardening as my hobby. Hoping to turn the front garden which is in the town Centre into something special. Help may be required.

That’s great thanks Dave I’ll cut the flower heads off tomorrow then cut the whole thing back in early autumn!

Do you want to keep it craig. If you do i leave it until spring . You get the flowers autumn winter. You can easily split them once youve cut it back. Just dig it up and cut it into 4 .

There's a bit of stigma going with these apparently, which is a real shame because there a great addition to any garden.

@davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co well I've just had my front garden (building site for 6 years) dug out, levelled and covered in stones so I have a whole empty garden to fill next year. I might transfer it into a bigger pot just now. Fingers crossed it survives the winter.😨
