Back home for a long Easter break, I decided that the house needed some tidying up, especially the garden. The tribe are great at living in the house but alas not so great at maintenance. Since I shall be working interstate and only back for short visits I decided that now is the time for a major garden overhaul! This meant some pruning of large shrubs around the house.
Not one to do research on the topic of pruning normally, usually I just jump straight into it, however as I have the internet and I thought I should research when is the best time to prune. Well my head is spinning……wrong time zone, wrong location, but I pretty much worked out that now is not the best time to prune. Bugger!!!! But I did find out that I can prune the Oleander now 🙂 …….which is the one that I wanted to prune the most, as it’s blocking my view of the city and overhanging the drive.
In my quest for knowledge on pruning I ran into this forum ‘The Tree World’. Reading through the posts on pruning elms I ran into a gem of a post by ‘derwoodii’. Assuming the querent Kay was a newbie to OZ, ‘derwoodii’ proceeded to give Kay a fabulous exposé on ……fast lessons about OZ…. WE ARE ONE …. http://www.treeworld.info/f2/pruning-elms-18536.html Nothing to do with pruning trees and definitely worth a read and a laugh! The joys of the internet…..it’s just full of such gems!
Well I am off to prune my Oleander!!!
Until next time,
Laugh, Love & Live!
