You may remember that in early April I put up a picture of my heavily pruned bay tree – and in the caption assured you that it would soon be covered with new growth……..
Well its taken a little while to agree with me – after all the “haircut” was pretty vicious – but here are the new shoots – all over the tree!
And here is another picture showing the shoots all over the tree!
And this is a very old ‘rambling rose’ – can’t remember what its called – that was growing up some trellis work that was groaning under its weight. It finally lost the battle in the recent heavy winds, and the rose has come down into the rest of the bed. I don’t want to waste all those lovely pink flowers, so I’ll wait until they fade before I prune it! (see also next post)
