Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

early this morning I attacked a large eunymous with my favourite garden toy viz. cordless extendable  hedgetrimmer.  Very tall and needed to climb a wall to access it.  Now looking dense and conical.  My neighbour .....I helped yesterday and was rewarded with a couple of lagers......came round with another batch of lager.  Glad I didnt drink the lager before I used hedgetrimmer . Getting to like my neighbour.  However, he did mention needing help with a few overgrown bushes

Suspect you may have a sedge Katfish...carex pendula,,maybe, which basically is a weed.  They tend to take over 

anything you don't like get rid of and plant what you know you do want.

Olive Trees - new shoots going limp

Posted: 08/04/2016 at 09:52

Simon 

olives are relatively hardy...much hardier than orginally thought.  Down here in (balmy) W Cornwall they are planted as features in our local towns

so.....yes, they were shocked. temperature apart the wind, sun,  rain, everything outside is so different to being indoors.

out during the day, back in at night time and do this for a couple of weeks if you can.

in mid spring cut off unhealthy leaves and prune back a little

They do have dead looking brittle stems right now.  Charity said "slightly green" so I am very optimistic they will be ok 

let us know when they shoot Charity
