      redstar sorry i'm late replying...just watched your video besides book marking your post :phew:

      That area is blooming well also and your bush is coming along nice but if you don't mind me saying I think some deep red flowering plants with more lasting yellows would really make it stand out...I just can't believe how an area that looks so dead in winter flourishes so quickly :love30::thankyou: again for showing us another video of your garden [​IMG]

            we have the joy of cutting down a hemlock that somehow got in the garden below. have to be proactive on the approach so to not get harmed by hit. wonderful.

              Lovely video...your Salia is beautiful besides your honey suckle and I just couldn't believe how matured the boarders have become since you've been away and if you move your hydrangea i'd wait till about September as I moved one last year and it's coming lovely on the front as the rain wasn't reaching it in the back garden and also I like your arrangement around your tree base :love30:

              :thankyou: for taking the time to do it only just coming back [​IMG]

                  redstar if you lived over here i'd soon have the old man around with a :dig: [​IMG]

                  The amount of Oyster plants you have in different variations are gorgeous :love30: especially around the trunk of your tree but I did like how you had it by your Gardenia and how you was walking back towards the end of your property where you started you have two beauties there...one you mentioned 20yrs old...I've been looking at them more on the net and the colours are unique especially purple blended ones.

                  That dead growth that's lose I bet you could sweep that out softly with a soft brush save hurting your plants...mind you at the rate they're growing at you won't see them :whistle:

                  I just :wub2: watching the maturity of your plants since you started it this year...it being my first time to see your plants mature [​IMG]

                  @Gail_68 , the section of many hosta's under and between the Rhodos are all put there about 20 years ago. the ones in the front line not as old, maybe 10 years. your right, I sometime . fold the spent growth under some of the hosta's , maybe tomorrow. but thinking of spending couple hours pulling out some of that ground cover to toss, its getting out of hand. I usually give sections "scheduled" amount of time, or I 'd be in one all day. Thanks for following me.

                    How ever long they've been there the shape is lovely on them as they look like a ball shape...I saw you mentioned that and I forgot to mention it as it can take over your other plants and suck the goodness out the ground.
                    Yes do it in sections mate as we all need breaks...ours is gravelled to cut the weeding lark out, as my hubby will design and do stuff like that but hates gardening in general but I have noticed lately advice being given to say he doesn't like it [​IMG]

                    It's a pleasure mate watching your garden mature with you :)

                    One year I had someone totally rip them all out for me. but still with some roots they come back. I just yank out two wheel barrel fulls and call it a day with those.

                      That's a lot redstar..the trouble is the rooting have set well in and even if you took it out with the extensive of how it's spread roots left will take off again.

                      So it looks like a yearly thing which will keep you on :)

                        the hardest part is getting under the shrubs and yanking it out. it a olympic event for me, feel it later.
