Can I prune a juniper bush?

Posted: 02/02/2014 at 13:28

I have 2 prostrate types out front. I have to keep them pruned so that they don't overhang the pavement. One is doing nicely, the other is going brown. Also there is a disease that is affecting juniper at the moment, so I don't know if it is windburn, pruning or disease that has got to the unhealthy one. Both were doing fine for about 10 years.

Try B&Q, I got one from there about 10 years ago and saw similar last summer. Or a half barrel?

Murals and special effects in paint, semi-retired. That means I don't have to work, but still do some projects.

YORKSHIRE PUDDING … .. …… .

Posted: 01/02/2014 at 13:47

I love cooking, but have never made Yorkshire Pudding. I heard a wonderful story about it years ago from a Scottish friend; her father came back from the 2nd World War to Edinburgh raving about this wonderful stuff that the English ate called Yorkshire Pudding. He found a recipe for his wife to use. She dutifully cooked it every Sunday. It wasn't till my friend came South to London as a twenty something in the sixties that she realised that Yorkshire Pudding should be light and fluffy, not a large heavy pancake! She also realised how much her father must have loved her mother not to say anything critical about it

Some people I know in London have this plant in their front garden. Is it hardy? Should it be fed and when? Any ideas?

I don't know about Laurel, but Privet is pretty forgiving, it may be worth trying.
