Pruning Kilmarnock Willow

Posted: 10/02/2014 at 10:45

Hi, CA.....nothing special about pruning Kilmarnock Willow really. Prune mid- to late spring, after flowering and once the risk of frost has passed.

Or, put another way, prune as code 1 if it were a clematis.

Thanks, Lizzie...the sweet pea was called 'Geoff Hughes'. I achieved the black background by placing the flower in front of the TV screen.

The dilapidated pigsty was changed from colour to black & white in Photobucket.

 Sometime ago I posted this pic I took of a duck having a stretch. I was so intrigued by the wing's pattern, I cropped it.



What do you think?

Very good, Star....although the exercise would be transferred from the arms to the legs.

Thanks, Lizzie, I agree about water & young children.

As part of the same pebble garden I have this half-barrel water feature I wouldn't consider it as child-safe, but then, my family is all grown up now.

Apologies to Lizzie....I should have commented on Cedric's arbour in my earlier post ....anyway, albeit a tad late, I think your arbour is really nice and in a really idyllic setting.

Lovely atmospheric moon shot from you,  Clarington....thanks for posting it.
