For those instances where some innocent plantings fall victim, through no fault of their own, to the depredations of erratic gardening decisions.
I, for one, am in the midst of dissembling my viburnum 'Doublefile', a bush about eight foot tall and as much in diameter, planted along my eastern fence, at the eastern end of my balcony. I had made a half-hearted attempt to remove it in the past and got lazy. It have decided it creates too much shade and I could gain more really sunny space for more iris and rudbeckia...and maybe a Cecile Brunner climbing rose on the fence...under the clematis, next to the honeysuckle, behind the rudbeckia.
Poor Doublefile was misplaced originally. I didn't think it through.
Next, the pink camellia on my southern fenceline.....letting in more sunlight. My garden shed and neighbor's maturing oak create collateral damage.
*sigh* I spent entirely too much time 'rasslin' a rootball' this past weekend. The aforementioned Doublefile. I've managed to get much of the stump removed, but one main stem remains. My body is aching and needs a rest. But now, the heat wave looms. Projected temperatures in excess of 100 degrees F.
