    If they are cuttings of perennials, they will usually grow for a couple of years, but get leggy. better to start new cuttings each year and discard old plant.

    You can usually chop back at end of first year, and get a good second year, but after that they tend to deteriorate.

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.
  • Thank you fidgetbones i,ll start chopping straight away.image
