I have been looking at moving some big shrubs around in the garden. My plot is not enormous – the actual planting area with lawn extends to 9 fence panels across by 7 down, so about 54ft x 42 ft. I’m going to be helped by a lady who gardens but has been learning this craft along the way in several local village gardens. Unfortunately somehow, she has been given a fee reign occasionally in a neighouring garden, so now we have the results of her earlier enthusastic replantings growing in quite the wrong areas. There’s a large bottle brush plant in the middle of a flower border – it should be further back and to the side or heading into a corner. A very vigorous clematis has taken over the back fence and is also climbing all over two shrubs set near by. But she’s keen, very hands on and has so far not refused any task put her way whether plant or hardware based!
