Eek,  no porridge!  Oh poor Chicky!  We're big porridge eaters.  My little one loved it when he was 2.  He role played making it and selling it at nursery, drew pictures of it, ate it for supper as well as breakfast.  Once I offered him chocolate to avoid having to make it  (tired mum!) which he wolfed down and then requested porridge again.

Morning everyone else! I'm only vaguely keeping up  -best wishes to all with illness and aches and pains and dealing with ignorant people. 

My baby has gone back to nighttime sleeping again so im feeling more human.  Elder child has recovered from sickness and is back to school.  Looking after just one baby is like a holiday ! (Didn't feel like that first time around!) Hoping I can bagsie the car today and have a trip to garden centre for cake.  What a life!

Cercidiphyllum japonicum, - can it be hard pruned?

Posted: 16/09/2015 at 20:58

I've not tested it but I've got rhododendrons and pieris.  Although it can't be that acidic as ive got hebes too.  The spot I've got in mind is replacing an azaelea and spirea. A longer term plan though, Dove - you've seen how much work my garden needs and how little time I've got.  Can't stop dreaming and designing though!

Cheers Dove.  That's 2 for coppicable and 1 against!  The coppicers have it.

ive just been watching Beechgrove and was interested in the candy floss tree they were discussing.  They said it could be cut right back so used as a shrub rather than tree. However when looking up more about the tree I found this which says they do not tolerate hard pruning.  Anyone know Much about candy floss trees?
