Thank you @daisy-jane and @pelly it and a couple more took over 20 x 40 ft patch of the garden it was tangled in brambles and had hundreds of pots and lots of pallets hidden in it! It was quite a weekend of clearing! We invited friends with chainsaws to help in exchange for food! And still it lives!
#rhododendron is full of buds! This is the most ridiculously determined tree ever, it's been chainsawed to the grown and used as a firepit and still it's 5ft tall and about 10ft wide and bursting with life!
This one was coming about 20 ft into the garden.. after years of neglect, but after a chainsaw massacre, and regularly being kept in check, it's lovely.. @bigemrg @pelly and @gjones but you can't give it an inch or it will run wild!!
