rather a severe pruning Will it recover?

half bricks are no problem. my garden is based on rubbish like that. But a solid patio might create some drainage problems. O,r if it's not a lawn, root problems

If the bricks are nice ones you could save them for use later. Edging or anything you need bricks for.

 honey fungus round the tree and across the lawn over the roots.

Better get the car fixed before retirement Dove. One night last winter I looked out of the bedrooom window and the car lights were on. I swore a bit and went out to turn them off but they were switched off. Water had got in a somewhere and made a contact from battery to lights.  

I've discovered something

Hi Peter, Dove's got there as well. They have berries like currants and the leaves are shaped rather like gooseberry leaves.

Hi Debbie. removing fungi fruiting bodies doesn't affect anything at all. Check out all the honey fungus threads on the forum and see if they match what you've got

callicarpa hasn't died but never looks much. It will probably be removed this winter
