If you've not cut back hard into old wood, they should be ok. If you were going to have severe frost in the next few nights, it might be an issue, but you can always fleece them if that should be the case.

Yvie - if you can catch something called The Tunnel - that was a British/French version of The Bridge. They used the Channel Tunnel instead of the beautiful Sweden/Denmark bridge. Pretty much the identical story

Nothing ventured and all that MF 

Do what makes you feel happy - that's the key to gardening. The only drawbacks are when you want to try something that your conditions won't allow. Trickier then!

His little feet will be hail, sleet and snow covered Wonks! 

Lesley - they both have a great sense of humour - they're just quite dry. My younger nephew has quite a monotone voice - my sister's children are all born and brought up not far from you - and it's just typical of that area. Stirling/Fife/ Edinburgh folk often have a tendency to sound that way.

It was during yesterday's coverage Panda. You'd get it online I think. They asked each other non tennis questions  

Roasties and Crumble for me Wonks - with cream please. I'll skip the suet thanks 

Separate plates though 

Reverse Pollarding

Posted: 29/11/2015 at 12:59

Hi Francisco, I'd be inclined to take all the branches right back to the main trunk. That's the usual process for pollarding. For mature trees this shouldn't be a problem. It's common where people have large trees in a small garden and want to keep the tree, or in an awkward site - for instance, where the tree may cause a lot of shade.

Others may have a different opinion

 Panda - did you catch the little game they (Andy and Jamie) played where they asked each other questions? Very amusing 


Posted: 29/11/2015 at 12:37

Panda - they kept saying 'Murray' yesterday as though there was only one, and had to correct themselves. Poor Jamie! He takes it all really well though. That was a great total you got. Bet you're pleased
