Re: Royal Paulownia

I figured you did know.  I thought coppicing and stooling were the same
thing too - usually 6-18 inches.  But before writing that I googled.  Every
item I came across said coppicing was cutting to the ground, which was news
to me.  Stooling was described as up to 24 in so I included that in my
message.  I think these terms, including pollarding are sort of like common
names for plants.  The term means what it means in certain areas and changes
from location to location or from everyday gardeners to educated gardeners.
Since I found this discrepancy, I would be more inclined to always include
the height to cut back to with the term as in:
Coppice the plant to the ground.
Stool the shrub to 12 inches high.
Coppice this bush to within 6-18 inches in height.

This would ensure the reader would have no doubt about the instruction.
