There have been some serious clearances. Filling the brown bin with spiky holly has been satisfying but it’s also allowed the phormium to show its total state and it’s not positive at all. It looks very poorly if I’m honest and a shadow of its former self.
I wish you could magically work out what roots have caused the biggest issue but it isn’t so easy. I think it’s going to need starting again! Phormium and all!
