PART 2. Another Revamp


Here’s how far I’ve got…..
Dug the Bamboo out, luckily it wasn’t deep rooted and the Rhizomes where just under the surface of the soil, it was a bit hard going, the Huffing & Puffing helped LOL, I cut the Hazel down to ground level, Wow! It sure is well rooted with all the suckers that came from it, I have now got to dig the Ground Elder out, Ha! That will be the hardest task, one little root left and it will come back darn stuff lol.
Here are a few more pics to let you know how things are going.
Oh! Saved the twig’s from the Hazel also the Bamboo Canes.
Gotta go and do some more digging and leveling now.

Oh a Hazel root!! We threw 2 working parties on our huge hazel and drink provided too and a good time was had.....(:

We shredded our cuts of the whips with a shredder we wheeled around the corner from a hire shop. Tried to get the root out, but ended up boring holes and adding noxious substance to see it off. Now it's just a few dried up bits of rotted wood.

Go carefully with that root please Essex Lady they can do you a hurt.

Really enjoyed your blog and photos. During the last year I have been digging holes in parts of my existing borders as plants not doing well. Amazed at how many broken bricks, bits of glass, broken pots I got out. Louby.

It is quite a big stool Essex girl. Hack at it a bit at a time and you will win in the end. You are doing very well. Let us know when Barry has arrived in Oz!
