Anyone else have too many shrubs?
I'm just thinking about the various cuttings and shrubs bought on a whim at the pound shop etc. that I have in pots all around the garden. I'm wondering what I'm going to do with them all. Probably trash them or give them away eventually but right now I have several fairly well established bits of chanomeles, camelia, hibiscus, forsythia, philadelphus, an azalea in a pot indoors that was part of a holiday arrangement, lots of climbing hydrangea cuttings, clematis, goji berry, tayberry, aucuba, photinia, and hebe. I already have too many shrubs in the ground as it is and the garden is fairly small.
Right now they are all in pots of various sizes but they probably can't stay that way for long. Maybe I should take a leaf from a neighbour and plant some of them in the scrubby woods nearby. Yesterday I noticed that somebody has planted one of those little "living Christmas trees" complete with the label from Lidl out there. It might be fun to give it some friends of the less invasive examples.
