A One Month Earlier Than Last Year

The pruning of the climbing plants started early last year, see blog entry 29th November 'Pruning Begins', starting with those on the top terrace of the front quad. This year the pruning began last Friday, 25th October, again in the front quad, but on the lower level, starting with the climbing roses on the old medieval cottages. Today the good start continued by finishing all the roses on the cottages and then moving up to one of the roses on the top terrace. The pruning of the other roses, the campsis and wisteria will carry on during the next month, continuing the good early start to this year's winter pruning.
