Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends - part 2

I have a cousin whose ex used to play games. He would never have the money for child maintenance, but always have money to spoil the kids with presents, games, clothes, that their mother could not afford. She was working full time to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table. It only got sorted when the courts put an attachment on his earnings. Then he turned really nasty and started badmouthing her to the kids. Kids are cleverer than you think. They now have no contact with their father as adults, but lots with their mother.

Use a few ripe stems as hardwood cuttings when you prune it. You can just stick them into free draining soil where you want them. Around 50%take for me like that. The beauty is, they are on their own roots, so do not sucker.
