So tidied up, spoke nicely to him/her and fingers crossed. Also uncovered dodgy fence, perhaps time to sort!?!?
@barbaramatthews cor blimey that's quite a haircut 😊
But I did have a little chum singing at me all afternoon! Think he could tell what lay beneath!
Brilliant photo 👍👍
Great shot Barbara !!!! 👍
Actually when I really looked at him, thought he's looking a little dishevelled! 😥
Maybe he had a bath in your pond😂
Thought of that, see if he looks better tomorrow! I am sure he's my regular visitor, well that's what I'm telling myself anyway! (I call him Pecky!) @kathy
No other name suits😊👌🏻
Hello Pecky nice to meet you 👋🏼👋🏼
Don't you just love robins 😍
This is how it looks tonight! Finesse tomorrow! The main "shoot" is a tree trunk!
Wowzers... That's like a @krishnahairdo haircut!!!
Was a bit wasn't it @krishnahairdo
Haha @barbaramathews what can i say, i got carried away with the topiary idea 😁
Bet it sits surprised for a couple of days and then races off into new growth. Plants are amazing and so resilient.
Well done! It will be fine
This has got HUGE! Needs pruning! I have read lots of advice, think I can go for it now, BUT how much? Any advice from anyone would be appreciated. I live in SW London?!
As discussed @kathy !!! I await advice before I crop it! 😜
I quite blithely cut mine back in late winter but it is not that enormous. I have just tapped the green plant name at the top of your photo and it tells you what you can do @barbaramatthews
@kathy thanks for that tip, I hadn't realised you could do that, very handy 😆
@barbaramatthews I would go for it, you might loose a bit of flowering but I have one and I'm always chopping it back, seems to get massive just at flowering time so it always feels wrong but does no harm 😊
Thank you @kathy I had done that! It's just the thought I guess of doing it, and killing it! Maybe I just go for it, right! 🙏🏻
Yes go for it and I'd do it as soon as possible @barbaramatthews
I often cut mine really hard. Always came back.
I think you'd be fine to go for it. Best to check for nesting birds before you start snipping, as that looks like the type of place they'd love to set up home.
Yes @vespa will do tho' think my neighbours cats keep guard! 😼
These can be cut down to about 6 inches off the ground if you had a mind..will always come back..
And still she glows!
Love it 😍
Lovely #yellow 😍
Bit of sunshine
Is this easy for a beginner?
Absolutely, in my garden anyway 🤣 #annabelh
