Lovely sunny morning.  Touch of frost too

Will get lettuce planted, onion sets in and peas planted out.

Very late this year with sowing.  Will sow runner beans too.

Time to cut back some hellebores...don't want seeding

Have nice day folks

Eucalyptus gunnii

Happycottontail

Yes, cut it ASAP.

I would prune it to second bottom branch and prune those back too.  A scattering of fish blood n bone lightly raked in will assist rapid growth and a great display of juvenile folkage.

If left it will become a vigorous out of control tree in a year or three

Sorry Dove.  Such sad news.  My mates dad died last week....same night my mum was rushed into hospital .  He died peacefully in his sleep.  

Dove, it's because you are obviously a caring person that you feel as you do.  You can only be there as much as you can I guess.
