106 year old Edwardian cottage garden with a 106 year old house attached which is equally challenging. Some days I feel like I'm the same age.

Looks fab. I was watching a video on fb yesterday about a machine that does this ... was very amusing to watch... will see if I can find it again

@angipangi I might give this a go, mines a bit out of control

@vec How brilliant is that. When I think how long I took to see if it was round kept cutting more off at one side and back & forth. Mind you they'll be selling them for a lot of dosh so can well afford a machine. I wonder if they have a machine to cut big holly trees into pyramids. I'm tackling 2 of my 11 this afternoon & boy it's hard graft. It's so prickly too. 😩

@shelleyB Euonymus makes lovely topiary&it's nice colour for the winter months.I have 6 plants of this one&the green & silver one grown from cuttings when I prune the main shrub. The 2 yr old ones are about 18" high&last year's are about maybe 10/12" high. I repotted them a couple of weeks ago so plan to practise more topiary on them.Have a go. It's really practise we need but it's difficult to start. I always try to be confident even though I'm not really.I'll put in some cuttings from these.
