Now the snow has receded we are able to get on with some of our other winter work. We have started on quite a large project to straighten and tidy the blocks of pleached Limes on the south side of the House. They were planted in 1962 and are now a very dominant feature of the area, like all living features occasionally they need bringing back into line (literally!). We are using string lines and will be trimming all growth back to them using loppers and secateurs, we will also take the opportunity to edge the lawn to the same line to finish the whole job off.
