In early April 2013 I posted a thread "Can I tame my monster rhodo?" Lots of you offered advice and Gold1locks in particular gave me the confidence to chop two rhodos (plus a laurel!) severely. I thought you'd like to see the result...I'm delighted with the improvement.

Is it the same garden? I'm amazed.

Well done Berkley. Big difference.  Big, big, improvement

That looks so good Berkley.

I chopped my laurels earlier this year to the same shape as your rhodos, they'll take a bit of work to keep on top of. 

My old rhodo seems to prefer to spread sideways rather than put on any upright growth, you have given me the confidence to reshape it. Fingers crossed.
