Overcrowded Shrubs battling for space!
We have finally made the heart-wrenching decision to move! We have been thinking about it for a while but have been putting it off, but there is no point in delaying the inevitable as country life no longer suits us. My other half comutes to Dublin four days a week which is not sustainable, and we want to be closer to family and friends. So, while I am saddened to think of leaving my garden, I do relish the thought of a blank (much smaller) canvas. The truth is I could probably completely furnish a new garden with plants that I have in pots and ones that are overcrowding this one. This picture shows a common mistake - I planted three shrubs way too close together about 5 years ago and now they are all growing in to each other and at least one will have to be removed, but not before I take lots of cuttings!
