    Unseasonal Weather/ pruning Cornus alba + Buddliea davidii

    They are very, very hardy John. If you are a little concerned then wait a further couple of weeks or so. However, prune to your heart’s content without worry

    Recovering a rubble filled flower bed

    Agree with that...it will look good there Gary. Plus the hard work makes it all the more satisfying afterward :)

    It could be that the Asparagus bed was past it's best, they can last for 15 or so years if looked after, I'd take a 50:50 approach and replant the most intact ones and get some fresh crowns. I'd also start in another bed rather than replant in the same soil to give them all a much better chance.
