Very nice A, I moved mine this year and it's not happy about it, hopefully it will be better next year.

DD - this one is twelve years old now. It gets a dry mulch every autumn but I don't cut down the top growth until I see new shoots the following spring

Must try dry mulching this time, what exactly do you use?

It's either woody material or straw from the compost heap that hasn't rotted down, or dry fern fronds (newly cut)

Thanks for that, will have loads of fern fronds this year....
