Ah but is he house trained Matty? That's the worst bit...

Only girlees in this house now, and if they want to bring boyfriends back they can go and live in the shed 

Panda what a shame. A few tree stakes or something to straighten it out and you'll be fine.

I'd offer to come with my saw and drill but they're both on strike just now from over use!

christmas soon

Cut another bit off the bottom as well and stand it outside in water until you're ready to bring it in.

I have those kinds of lists too 

chicky- how is the trellis doing? I assume no one's had any more windy weather overnight?

Hello all. Dry and clear here after all the rain. Even got washing ready to go out.

Might even get some more of those bulbs in after work or else there will be a nice display in the shed in spring rather than the garden 

Have a good day everyone

It'll be hard work taking all of those out at one go, so it's probably best to decide which ones you really want to keep first. If you need help identifying them you'll get help here if you post photos of each one. The ones you don't want to have in the front garden could be put in the back garden if you have room there. The ones you keep for the front could be positioned in a better way probably- a new corner border for instance. Removing as much rootball as you can is important in the shrubs you keep and it might be better to plan over the winter and start moving in spring. Any holes can then be filled , firmed down and re seeded or turfed.

If there's shrubs you don't want at all - just take them out now!

Mint Aero- yes!  

Pumpkin carvings

This may sound like a daft question but what kind of knife do you use for carving? Or do you use various ones depending on the pattern?

Could have done with one of those buttons on many occasions...

Glad you had a good trip Dove- I'm sure you and nut had some great chat
