Hi Dan,I think your tidying up is spot on ,we moved here about 12 months ago and still things are shooting up all over the place that we didnt even know was in the garden,   so we photoed them and uploaded them here for info as we went , tidying and weeding can take a long time and thats what we did , we did plant the new fruit trees last year so were all ready to go with a fairly weed free garden and theres no pressure with time or mess to clear up, just deciding how we want OUR new look to be, its quite exiting starting a new garden look now the hard parts out of the way, drawing boards out just want to agree on the new look, and very important we enjoyed almost every second of it and the coffee flowed, now with this weather its coffee and a dram of whiskey in it. Good luck Dan Enjoy

Hi all ,this was a rescue plant when we moved here,I think its a Yucca of some kind and was in the rubbish bit, I replanted the larger one and the two smaller ones came,now its looking healthier and is a fairly strong grower i think the pot might be too small for three, So wot to do, wait till summer and split or do it now , or leave for a year or so i don't know ?

 excuse yellow leaf its one of my figs just come in from the cold ready for winter,Cheers miserable cold rain erein Muns Nor  Norfolk
