Rhus suckers

Sir/Madam: I wish to alert you to a new threat to the unsuspecting gardener.  Vegetable plots abound, as we know, but none is so worrying as the cunning rhus, which will sucker you into anything.



  • Indeed, Verdun, I veered away from using terms like 'fatal'. One hardly wishes to spark mass wisteria. In any case, while serious, the contention that a rhus, however cunning, could lead to the loss of life is frankly umbel-leafable.

    An unwary gardener rhus planting in haste

    In London. Keen but lazy.
  • Jokes, Verdun? I offer sage advice - learned, I might add, from no less a ground elder than my Great Aunt's second under-gardener Dibber - only to be mock oranged. Another sad reflection of a culture gone to seed.

    Dear B3 - indeed, but pray remember that two marrows may never come.
