Yew Tickle me

Post  Guest on Fri Apr 15, 2011 3:52 am

On the Saturday at Best of British, Tony said he'd got something in the back of his car he would like to show me. On opening the boot, Tony showed me his bush and what a fine bush it is. I couldn't stop looking at it. A bit on the small size but some lovely movement and I had to have it.

Nice one, Will. Do you have any new buds on it?
Cpl of years before you can work on it, I guess?

Hello Faz. Two years at least. It's covered in little buds and they are on the move.

I expect there will be areas that die off but a lot of it looks strong.

Call me cheap... you have the same Quality Street Tin of toffees from the sixties... (and I bet you have eaten all the Purple Brazil Nut ones too!)

Also for a Shandy-drinking southern softie you cannot tell the difference between a Yorkshire pudding and Lancashire Hotpot.

Oh dear! that might have been indirectly my fault. I threw him a curve ball by buying him not just one but two tubs of ice cream last weekend and thus disabling all his "skinflint mean Jocks" comments. He's become completely discombobulated by this and has lost all sense of geography.

And anyway, the only difference between a Yorkshireman and a Lancastrian is the ratio of depth of their pockets to the shortness of their arms. And the definition of both is that they are merely Aberdonians with the generosity wrung out of them.

For those across the pond and other distant but exotic locations (Rothesay? Isle of Wight?) please note that we do but jest. jocolor

And you told me you were a Hampshire Hog!
Very Happy
Nice little tree that rather has the look of a juniper.

I have to disagree Will, Tony gave me a little Taxus when I visited his garden for the first time last year.
Unfortunately, neither of the two I got made it through last winter Sad Sorry Tony - they just weren't up to the Winter we had last year - the pots were frozen solid for about 10 days (I had them under shelter too).

Nice tree you got there though Will. I look forward to seeing what you'll do to it. Any initial thoughts?

Hello Paul. It was a bit tongue in cheek...A bit. Very Happy First thing is to get it in tip top health and lots of strong growth. I see a semi cascade at the moment but it rather depends on where the tree dies of and where the strong growth lies. At the moment, you can see where the strength is and where the weak areas are. The tree will lead the way.
