Talkback: What to prune in winter

Posted: 06/02/2014 at 19:51

Speaking of choisya, when we moved here 3years ago we inherited a large, really wayward one. I cut part of it off altogether and some down to the ground, the rest I left as it was.  This plant has barely flowered since, that's 2 summers, will it recover or should I chop ALL of it down and hope for the best.

I did feed it last year and I would like to keep it but would love to see it flowering.

I hope I'm not hijacking this thread by the way.


Big garden bird watch

Yes I get very annoyed with all the mail coming through the door, we are members of RSPB and I don't like the money we pay each year wasted on this sort of thing.

We also have a stump......and a stump it will remain!! It was hard enough cutting down, chopping up and disposing of a 25foot conifer no way am I going to spend anymore time and energy attacking the stump.

I wish you luck with whichever method you decide on.

Makes for very interesting reading, hope I never need to put any of it into action.   

My OH has just said ' I hope we haven't carried any home on our tyres' we sometimes call in Worsborough for a drink. Is that possible I wonder?

Porridge with cranberries, yummy, followed by toast and thick cut marmalade washed down with loads of tea!. Have to try not to bend  too much in the garden after that lot, could get messy
