Their reputation for hating their brittle roots disturbed is unfounded as far as I am concerned.  They divide and regrow very quickly so I have a few white as well as pink varieties

C3k, I would prune out all weak will amount to nothing.  prune the rest to as low as possible...if you see buds try to prune to outward facing omes to produce a nice open bush

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Cloudy but warm morning but sunny now....really very pleasant.   No wind here either 

Cut a hedge and other stuff for a friend this morning and now trimming large eunymous, pittosporum Irene Patterson and pruning here.  Grow these and other evergreens as cones or mounds.  Very satisfying shaping them 


Where to keep citrus trees (lime) at this time of year?
