We were probably both there at the same time Dyers End   I knew quite a few of the people involved as family farmed in Suffolk and I was a YFC member ... I did ride, but not brave enough to P2P - nearly every time I fell off I broke something   Uncle had hunters and chasers  and rode with the Whaddon Chase and cousin became a trainer ... almost won the Grand National ......

What to do with overgrown Eucalyptus

I would coppice it ... cutting both trunks right down to the ground ... info here

I think I'd wait until early March next year, as we're having such a dry spring.  It'll need moisture to send up lots of new shoots.

Some people may be braver than I am and say go for it now .......

I take pelargonium cuttings throughout the growing season ... but you need a non-flowering shoot to make a good cutting.

The Forgotten Herbs

I grow sorrel and have grown lovage.  I use sorrel in sauces and egg dishes - I really like the flavour.  The small leaves are also good in salads.

Lovage is a great addition to a stock, and the leaves are lovely in salads.  They do grow into huge plants 6-8ft tall after a couple of years, and take up a fair bit of space.
