My garden 'is' history
Bring on something milder so we can carry on gardening I say. By the way Springy, nice documentation, I did something similar on another forum, I'll try and post it on here.
During the last few winter the word is frustration more than anything with not having a consistent base but hopefully it'll be better for you.

they look more like they are going dormant than being kept in growth and when kept dormant for winter they need to be somewhere cool and dark.
also they should be kept quite dry, watering only enough to stop it totally drying out.

Should I leave it to die back naturally or should I keep cutting it back? I am not sure why its doing it as the three others are fine, although they are different varieties.
I am thinking about bringing it into the house to bring it into growth earlier as I don't want to loose it's height. I have had to cut over a foot of the stems off just to get it in the outhouse door!
