Another good point, Dove....but when I grew mine the trend was to plant with the graft on the surface, unlike now when (as you rightly say) the trend is to plant (for stability reasons) the graft below.

I know I'm bit old-fashioned, but I still plant mine the old way, as I can only see problems with suckers with this new-fangled way.

Now that's my idea of a proper garden  You can keep your Chelsea stainless steel and plastic monstrosities.

I take your point, Dove. Ballerina is a very old variety that I grew 40 years ago and I can't recall any undue base growth....it should be easy to identify if it is above or below the graft.

Didn't see the Beechgove episode you mention, rosemummy....three plants per cane should okay, but ideally two would have been better.

Probably, Lyn.....are they growing from the base? If so they will be from the briar rootstock to which your Ballerina was grafted to.....best remove them.
