    Oh sounds good Eileen thanks. I think my best bet though is go with your first advice. its already mid august and my bushes are starting to turn brown (the flowers themselves are/were blue)
    if i wanted to try your second idea whats the best time to do that? more June right when they are first starting to turn blue?
