Not much in the garden to waste my time on now. I am pretty ruthless about getting rid of plants I don't like.
There is a largish juniper that I often consider removing but it's trimmed every year, is a nice blue colour, gives "weight" to the garden and doesn't really have any browning. It's kept to about 10' high and as much across. Would miss it if removed. However, I think of the new planting area I would have......
Any invasive plant, or anything showing tendency to run, is denied as is anything sharp edged/pointed. Thus, agaves, pampas, bamboo, yucca, certain artemisias and euphorbias like griffithi have been given away to my "friends". Others like crocosmia,,headychium, , certain grasses are "watched" and controlled.
Shrubs that start declining are removed sooner than later. Bit ruthless I guess. Ha ha
