NEVER buy a house with those b...y conifer hedges ever again!!
Today we have added a new rule:
NEVER buy a house with those b......y ELDERBERRY bushes/trees ever again!!
Because every two years you have to do this:
And that was the small one, If I had turned round there is one twice as big overshadowing a shed and blocking light from a shrub bed.
The possibility of a south westerly wind on a dry-ish day so we can have a bonfire in the next two months is probably remote so no hurry to clear this lot down to the bonfire.
I do love the elder-flowers in the spring but the things grow like crazy if you let them get away from you.
