Anyone done any gardening today?

Those splinters will fester out eventually Forester and Gardenmaiden, they always do.

I won't let things get out of control though, thanks for the advice. Do you think some Magnesium Sulphate paste would help? on the fingers at least, might be tricky on the back of the earlobe

Still cutting blackthorn suckers, another heap of shreddings to do. Painful stuff, I've had splinters in two knuckles for at least a week, some in my legs and now I've got one in my earlobe.

gypsophilia

its gypsophila but often gets an extra i.

There are many species, annual and perennial.

G. paniculata is the one I've seen being sold bare rooted in supermarkets and GC.

Hawthorn would be my choice as the main species. It cuts well to a hedge

I would leave out blackthorn, it's painful and it suckers.

Berberis

Dig around it and cut through roots as you find them, once you can rock it things  get easier.

We agree there Verdun, plant something else.

Berberis won't get fireblight, wrong family.

Rosaceae get fireblight. Berberidaceae don't.

Diseases are generally specific to one family so it might be a good idea to choose something from another family to replace it
