Re: Goodbye Garden-Update! NOW Pruning

I totally agree with you, Bonnie. I will never understand why our county and our electric company don't use the services of the state arborist to learn about pruning trees along the rights of way. Last spring the electric company butchered a sugar maple that wasn't even near the wires, and the county regularly destroys every living thing along its roadways. It just looks like they intentionally hire the stupidest people they can find, and around here there are lots of them.

Can't understand why anyone would object...they look so neat and healthy.
Usually 6 hrs is enough for most flowers and fruit so maybe yours will make
it fine, especially if you can move them around to get a little more. My
sister and brother-in-law came up for my birthday and we spent quite a bit
of time sharing gardening info and plants. I had pulled a bunch of
articles together on punning so he got a pretty good education...actually
asked for copies of four. Maybe these landscape "specialist" need to have
a license with some basic training...it distresses me each time I see a
beautiful tree or bush butchered or trees that have been partially buried
with dirt due to construction. They might as well just cut them down
because they won't live long.

Good news...we got him to let us keep some plants where they are, and the
rest are now in the alley. It's not your typical dirty alleyway.it's
in a bit overgrown. The landlord uses it for storage mostly. My only
is sunlight.. It's on the east side of the house, and has a lot of trees.
From my calculations and observations today, my plants will get roughly
direct sunlight and a mixture of shade and sun dappled light the rest of
time. I just hope it's enough. At least I can move the pots around to
the sun. If I have to I can move them to other sunnier spots around the
alley as the day goes on. Will be a little work but it's worth it. to have
my garden! If need be we'll negotiate with him again. I'm perfectly
to weed the front for him in exchange for getting a few extra hours of sun
for my babies.
The "landscape" service is next door..they've been hacking away at some
bushes for a few hours. It looks pretty hideous. I can't be the only
around here who knows there is a right way and a wrong way to prune
can I?
  Here is a pic of my little urban garden. For some reason the plants
look a
little yellow but they aren't.! They are nice and green and bushy. I think
it was the angle I shot the pic at and the sunlight.. You can't see much
fruit but it's there! Oh and that's my little helper. He loves gardening!
And he's a very good boy. He doesn't try and eat any of the plants or use
them as his bathroom. He loves it when I water though. Silly cat, he
actually likes to get watered along with them! LOL!
