Well, he won but.....

looks like Trump has won the battle between 2 unpopular candidates but it wont change anything.


That "wall" will not be built nor will any of his extreme measures be acted upon


Let's not knock the American people......for the huge majority a big change was needed.  They voted with hope in mind


no need for any of us to panic or indulge in any wild imaginings 


...just announced Trump has won !

Not a conclusion you can jump to DAN.

Tetley, trimmed from the start leylandii are great.....as shown in your picture.   Very difficult though to reclaim any part that is woody or bsre

Respect Pansy


well try it steve and please let us know.  Feedback, as I often ask for, is so important 


happy to admit it if I'm wrong.....but cannot see 12' spindly  leylandii branching out as a result of a few inches lopped off the  top

NO ...just upwards Steve.


 Spindly = spindly no matter how many inches you take off .  It will not bush out 

Frost got my dahlias

No Wakeshine.  Take the whole dahlia plant and saw it in half.  Take off, use sharp knife, those tubers sliced by the saw. Those that "fall off"  discard.  If you cut in half you will have more than one stem...that's fine.  


Please don't untangle every tuber. Not necessary.


as I said before, you are over thinking it all W. 


When you see your bisected dahlia growing away next spring you will,have the confidence to separate or divide dahlias easily

"Precious" as in not worrying too much 


often you can pull tubers apart but with large ones use a saw...don't panic when you do it!  Saw in half then cut out any tubers sliced.  Pot up or protect.  


Look for stems on every group of tubers
