I have one which I have had for 41 years and transfered it when we moved and also grew some as a hedge.The lilac has now been in one spot for 36 years but alas it has a virus of sorts and is dying.it grew as a small tree as we pruned the top so as it woundt get too big.

Whats Vermin? most of the wildlife if we take into account everybodies dislikes or what  seems to threaten our exsistence.Like people we cant all get along together in peaceful harmony which is a shame.Things do need controlling ,you cant have a house full of mice and the farmer cant have all his crops eaten by rabbits but we should have some understanding we cant have it all our way.
