Trimmed back all the plants in the front yard, I have no iea what I'm doing but it looks a lot tidier. They have grown back for the last 7 years so I must be doing something right.
On a different note, my Dragon Tree doesn't look very well. It's 32 years old and the leaves are going brown and dropping off, I'm guessing it's old age and will replace it with a new one...

Is it in a pot? Try giving it a shock by re-potting it and loosening the root ball up.
My front garden just sits there looking desolate! Must cut the Lilac back where it pokes through the fence line when we have a dry day.

Not quite `gardening' but it's good to see that new plants are still being found that might be saved from extinction and could possibly provide new medicines...or even garden plants!

I heard that report about Kew Gardens Tiz and once again marvelled at the fact that dedicated people all over the world are ferreting out new information about very old things. It makes the seed bank in Svalbard even more essential!
