Nandinas Gone Wild
A few weekends ago we took on the two Nandinas next to the pool. They had gone wild and we needed to rein them in. So we got out the loppers and started cutting
Even though we had pruned them a bit last year, they had begun to grow into one of the bananas and our dogs' pass through. Long ago the dogs decided that they needed to run through the garden bed between the nandinas and the blue pot. Rather than trying to break them of this habit, we just keep it clear.
Once we got going it was hard to stop. There was plenty of standing back and surveying our handiwork. After the dust cleared, we were able to fill the back of our Tundra truck full of branches, and still have plenty of shrub left.

We were also left with two distinct shrubs. It looks strangely bare to me right now, but soon it will fill in with foliage from the tropical garden.
Anyone else tackle any pruning projects lately?
