After the Chop

After the Chop

Always bit nervous as to how little or much to prune off, Johnny seems to think that it shouldn't be touched so while he was away I set in, possibly could have done a bit more but you cann't stick it back on. Looks much neater now.

A job well done!

You mightn't get a whole lot of flowers on your montana this year after that. But sometimes you just have to do what you have to do.

Nice dog

I think I agree with Rachel. Leave it until after flowering. However, it's done now, so best of luck. Certainly looks tidy now. If it was a late flowering one like Nellie Moser, it woud be OK.

Well now I've made a mess of it I certainly will remember the lesson learn't I did want to tidy it last year after it flowered but clock cann't be turned back now. Wondering should I prune back some of the stems lower down would this mean that next year I'd have flowers lower down? Thanks Martin Connie is a lovely dog.
