APRICOT TREE – SHOULD IT STAY OR GO?

Its been a while since I’ve been here, just been recharging my batteries

Decided today my garden needed some attention.

Last week I dug up (blood sweat and tears) two big cacti plants.  This has opened up the left hand border and given the dogs somewhere to pee without being speared!

The new wall which had sparse cover from climbers has now filled out so  much it needed a good cut today

I decided my right hand border needed some colour as the foster pups (now thankfully rehomed)  had eaten all my flowers.  Bought some marigolds (my dad’s favourite) some geraniums and a couple of plants that had flowers like busy lizzies but not the same leaves.

So, apricot tree – should it stay or should it go?  Please let me know what you think.

    Ooooh stay, as Gemma says, if it produces nice apricots! Love the feel of your garden, and the colours!

    If it grows fruit keep it – if it doesn’t then it’s not earning it’s keep! Amazing how removing those cacti have opened up that border – big difference. Hope you didn’t get spiked too much removing them!
    Thanks for joining in again – and I love the before and after contrast- that walls covered so much more now.

    well looks like the apricot tree gets an overwhelming STAY! Maybe I’ll just try to cut out some dead bits and get someone to lop the top off to make it more manageable 🙂 . I’ll let you know next year about the crop of fruit. None this year but thats been right across southern Morocco apparently. Last year was a bumper crop, two big mixing bowls full. Thanks for all your comments!
