"Show me your garden and I will tell you what you are" Alfred Austin
What I think he should have said was, show me your closet and I will tell you what kind of gardener you are. You see, I have the greatest difficulty pruning and pulling out plants that are really in the wrong place. This spills over to everything in my life including my closet.
On my pomegranate tree I know I should remove two of these fruits but it is just so hard for me to do. In fact D was hoping there would be no fruit on the tree this year because the tree is quite huge and I think he would like it out. It is full of fruit so it gets to stay for another year.
A rock rose is growing up through the middle of this Indian Hawthorn bush. How long will it stay there? Probably all summer.
I have to admit that these blanket flowers and black eyed susans along the rock wall don't look too tidy.
Now these are going to be very difficult to pull out but there are some plants that I actually planted growing underneath.
However, I did pull out the rest of the tomato plants and the deer were the beneficiary of the damaged and green tomatoes and the foliage. New crop going in and guess what, one of them was growing in the path. I potted it up until it had established some more roots and now it is in the ground.
