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?

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

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!

 Couldn't enlarge one or two of the pix but I'd agree with  Hebe and Sedum (iceplant) . Hebes can be cut back but they don't always make it.  First one looks too feathery to be Lavender- Santolina sounds a good shout. Sedums are easy to propagate and split. You can literally pull bits off and stick them in a pot of compost.

Tracey - Neil Young is one of the greats. Did all the bad stuff and survived thankfully - just like James Taylor. Needle and the Damage Done is about addiction. Great writer, does his own thing and a big influence on many of today's s.songwriters.

Classic songs pdoc. My sis used to play Needle when she was a student! Southern Man and Birds also big faves for me .  After the Goldrush is my favourite Neil Young album. Saw him many years ago in Glasgow and he was brilliant. He's not really appreciated enough here. Watched a great concert recently on tv from about 8/9 years ago. It's a wonder he's survived this long! Joni's 'Circle Game' is about him.

Verd - that was very naughty....mother in law indeed...

It's the white I want Jim because I don't like the colour of the others  Salmony- pinky- orange is a no no for me!

Good luck Duncan. The biggest advantage of Pyracanthas is the wildlife it brings in. In fact, with a bit of luck there'll be loads of bees....that'll keep the little cherubs at bay!
