salix caprea kilmarnock

Thanks for the kind comments but I no longer live there. I can't take credit for a lot of what you see in terms of the pond and the planting - it had been there a long time. We did the renovation round the pond, laying a path so that we could actually walk along the side of it (the gravel areas and stone seat etc) and a lot of clearing , pruning and tidying! The stone gateposts Salino mentioned were invisible, which was a great pity as they had the name of the house on them. The hedge had been planted far too close to them so there was a limit to what we could do with it.

Verd - I'd have needed more than a wand to fix what was wrong when I was there, and I don't mean the garden

Verd....I don't know....

you're clutching at strawbs now....

chicky - I'd be worried that they'd dry out if you leave them out of soil for too long. Could you stick them all in a pot with a bit of compost or soil round them? It wouldn't have to be too perfect - they'd be fine till the weekend then.

I'm off now too. Watching D.I.Banks and can't concentrate on both things 

Must be my age.

Stacey - the thread has a 'French' flavour...and concerns Monty.

That's all the clues you're getting - or were you questioning my 'virtual' singing!

That's the problem ggranny. The police rarely bother anyway, and will do nothing unless there's damage. If you call in lawyers it all gets messy and you just risk retaliation. It's a very sad state we have nowadays when so many people just can't behave in a considerate way, and law abiding decent ones feel helpless

Hard to believe it's been gong that long!

Got a cake then Verd? 

I live in hope

Verd - here's hoping your info will do some good. You're right - who has time for that if they're running a business? 

David - if we all stick together and keep posting - helping other genuine posters and having a nice time - then we'll be fine. Positive thinking 

altogether now :

# go on now go, walk out the door, don't turn around now, 'cos you're not welcome any more......

Bamboo in trough

fidget's right Tim. If you just lop a bit off the top it'll look pretty awful and won't regrow from there.  If you're worried about taking it all away, how about taking the stems nearest your neighbour right down to the ground, and leaving the rest as they are . If you're careful, you'd still have a reasonable clump but it would all be on your side of the fence. 

Just realised you said it's in a trough. Can you not just move it!
