Last year i decided to try to train a chaenomeles against a fence. It didn't really appreciate it and some branches died back. However, three main stems survived (along with lots of small new ones) and one was looking particularly pretty. Today as I was taking my secateurs back to the shed, I spotted it and thought I'd just quickly get rid of the dead stems and re-tie the others to tidy it up. I cut a thick stem right to the ground, stood back, and I'd only bloomin' well cut off the best stem of all image.

It's all lopsided now. Act in haste, repent at leisure.

    I feel very silly. 

    In the meantime,  a bit of it is looking lovely in a vase.

    You have my sympathy.

    We've all done it! Or stepped back onto the very thing we were being very careful not to step onimage

    I  did wonder about cuttings, Tetley. Not too confident with them so didn't, and it's too late now. 

    And Buttercupdays, I did that in the process too! I think they'll recover...

    I will, next time... hoping there won't be a next time for this particular error!
