I've recorded the James Martin progs but only discovered he was doing it after 10 of them had been on. Boo!
I've been hacking - dangerous when I get a pair of loppers in my mitts. Decided it was too late to spray so went and watered all my treasures in pots and then got out my trusty pruning saw to remove 3 thicker branches I couldn't get with the loppers the other day and then went to see what OH was doing with the overgrown bamboo and said new loppers.
He trotted off out with the dogs so I have now done radical surgery on a hibiscus and an as yet unidentified tree that needed its crown lifting and the overgrown fig. OH now has a lovely pile of stuff to gather up and feed to his chipper. I hope the fig is shocked into producing some fruit.
Kittens have been up half the trees in the garden and are now fast asleep. No doubt they'll wake up at bedtime.
Shame about Peter Skellern.
