^ I had two HUGE ones in front of our front window that I eventually had to tear out. Not only were they obstructing the window views, the roots were starting to do a number on my sidewalk and foundation. Very pretty, but when they get to be as tall as your house, they're not good to have too close!

Now if I can get the roots pulled out from the Juniper Shrub that I cut out from around my mailbox - what a bear that thing has been to remove. While it looked good when I first put it in, weeds started coming up from inside and when I would go to pull them, the shrub branches were like cactus poking into my arms and gloved hands. It got to the point where the weeds and grass were overtaking the shrub and it just looked like crap, so time for it all to be pulled and start over with something that looks a little better and is easier to weed around.

Yeah, and now I find out, they're selling for $2 Cdn each! I bought my
three for $5 each, at the time. Oh well.

Unfortunately, shipping 'might' be a teensy bit more... $$$$$$.

David and I just went to a (what I call) "Chi Chi" Gardening Centre. Meaning, it was in a very pricey part of the city, and the prices on some of these plants, were way more than I expected them to be. But we were there for a few ferns, and a specific Basil (Thai) that David wanted. And I discovered there were TONS of kinds of Basil to be grown and enjoyed in cooking, etc. So I may return, to create a "Basil Clock" with at least 9 of them to grow.

Very nice place - I mean the green house.
To want to, is to be able to.
