    Default winding up

    I have got rid of my front (main) greenhouse and am cutting down the three fruit trees beside the drive as I keep falling over in the first,, and finding the second too much and I will be widening the drive this summer, and getting rid of the raised beds too, I am just not steady enough out there now, so am being sensible and just keeping the back greenhouse (polycarbonate walls) with the stone fruits and a few strawb plants..

    You come first, Buffs, then the fruit trees - so I'm pleased you're being sensible (this time).
    You've always had fantastic fruit from your back greenhouse - and you can enjoy those even more this year without the extra work. x

    Take it easy and enjoy, gardening is not meant to be hard work.(though it does seem to be at times lol)

    There comes a point when the glass has to go, best to sort it now before it becomes an issue.

    You can always sneak another tree in, perhaps in more out of the way location when everything else is sorted.
