Morning all.
Dove ears can get very bad very quickly, maybe a walk in centre today would be a good idea?
Louise keep at it, sounds like you're doing the right thing to me. I planted winter jasmine in autumn ready to train up house wall but now decided to have patio doors redone so will need temporary trellis first.
Hi everyone, enjoy the sun and gardens.x

Yes Janette, I did mine yesterday to 5-6ft. Would cut them down as low as I could if I had the equipment and they'd still come up nice and tall.

Fatsia is castor oil plant. Got mine at GC, its come through winter fine. Others in neighbours gardens have been going for years but can suffer in winter so be careful. Lovely and tropical. Want a gunnera too but need to know more about their requirements.
