There are always places that over time, a plant or two out grows the space they are in. Sometimes it's just a case of trimming or cutting back etc but sometimes, it's time to take them out.
Such is the case with a lovely white climbing rose we put in along the side fence at the end of the garden, we have cut it back a couple of times but now it's just too big and hanging more over next doors garden than our own.
This is just half of the rose stem, really thick, we already cut back the other half but now it needs to come out.
You can see the rose stem going through the winter honeysuckle bush (also coming out) and through the middle of the Lilac tree, that it's made spread and then filling the skyline.
Now it's gone it's opened up the space for the lilac tree which is nice. We still need to dig up the roots but at least the lilacs have a chance to get some warmth and light before winter sets in.
Looking back to the now open space. We are going to keep this section open and plant only low growing plants in the space or maybe just add a large pot or two. Still to be decided.
There is still some nice colour in the garden.
