Knowing when to stop

Posted: 23/07/2014 at 21:14

I never know when to stop. I went out this morning to take branch off a tree paeony. So much growth this tear I could sit on one of the seats. Then another branch making the steps very narrow, so off it comes. Branches of Viburnum bodnantense are crowding a choisya, off they come. and that one hiding the solomon's seal, and that bit of Cotoneaster lacteus is stifling those hellebores and Molly the Witch.

So now I have a shredding mountain again, not a pleasant summer job. It will have to wait

I think you need a good big shredder Jap. It reduces branches and twigs from a mountain to a small hill

Kilmarnock Willow

I should think the new growth is very willow-like

These plants are grafted onto some other willow rootstock at that is throwing up shoots. Remove them, they'll be bigger than Kilmarnock in no time

Identify my plant please

Anyone got any further ID on this one?

Gypsy, you need to start another thread to get some replies. Too confusing IDing 2 plants on one thread

Hedgehog Watch!!!

If it wasn't for my bats and great crested newts I'd be feeling very jealous of you two, Dove and snowathlete.

I haven't seen a hedgehog for years

Silver birch removal

There's a world full of life Aysha and it's not out to get you. Silver birch is dropping seed at the moment, not harmful. Relax and enjoy your garden.

Trees drop some leaves in summer. Only a problem if you make it a problem.

I know what you mean Dove, that sounds a great idea. I wonder if I can fit one in

Maybe I have though, somewhere under the bindweed
