Will you be taking the shears to this quaint little setting?


Wilmington NCThis is quaint and charming but would it look better trimmed? How do you know when to trim? Some people really struggle with taking away from the ageless look while others would be trim happy. Which are you?

    I trim for the health of the plant and for views. If a plant is getting a bit too happy in one direction, I’ll prune it.
    I would probably prune this cause I’d want to see the view beyond.

    I trim where I need to. If a plant gets in the way it gets trimmed but I try to leave things alone. Of course when I take enough cuttings it’s like I gave it a trim!
    Me too–I trim until it’s cut real good.

    I think if you blink it could overtake the garden….poof!
    I had a wisteria that grew a foot a day. I won’t be planting another one.

    My hubby is a timber faller so I must say we are trimmers. Not always how I love seeing it done but he is seriously chainsaw and fire happy. Good luck!
    I have seen you post the funniest things about your timber faller. My MrD is a brainiac that sits behind a desk most days. His motorized events include a luxury truck and a John Deere.
