I had a bit of a google, it meant nothing to me,  found Eupatorium rugosum, aka Ageratina altissima. 

So yes, have grown and lost it. Too dry I think.

Are all eupatoriums (eupatoria?) ageratina now?

I shunned facebook for years but have recently found uses for it. I don't do friending, unfriending and general drivel but I get my moths ID'd when I can't do them ( and keep an eye on the NGS and the HPS (among others). 

Unfortunately I have no idea how to access facebook pages without a link from a website. How do I find gardening for wildlife David?

Pruning woody Rhamnus alaternus Argentovariegata

Mine broke off at about 3 foot in a wind/snow event and has grown back OK.I preferred the conical shape it had before the event, it's a bit shapeless now, but alive and well. I also have to remove reverted bits

Reverse Pollarding

We might pollard a lime. Some idiot planted it under the electric wires 60 years ago.

Or maybe there was no electricity here 60 years ago. We don't have gas or drains now. Or much of a broadband connection

No Jo

I quite like a pollard shape.

I don't think you could ever reverse that, the only possibility I can see is to cut it to the ground and allow one shoot to grow. Given the nature of limes this would be an on-going cutting job
