Morning all.  Season's  greetings

had to dismantle a huge wardrobe yesterday for my niece for someone to collect.  Every piece, esp the glass sliding doors, were bloom'in heavy .  The  buyers were a pain.  although price was agreed they himmed and hammed.

for me now summer pruning is all that is needed.  Cropping is regular and heavy
