But enough of that as this post is really about the "end of the camellia in the garden". Yes I have taken all the camellias that came with the garden one at a time. It seems cruel really and I actually do like camellias. They grow so happily in the leafy and sandy soils of my area. And I might even have left these lasts ones in if I liked the colour of the flower but I wasn't enamored.
|Not awful but there are far prettier ones. And this was the prettier of the two that came out|
So I figured a couple of citrus which should grow to at least the same height are far more productive. I do have some concerns about the amount of sunlight they will get which won't be ideal. Morning sun, dappled light through the day and late western sun. What do you think? Am I dreaming? Can you think perhaps of a medium sized fruiting tree that might do better in lower light conditions? Here is the documentation of the removal. First three were in the afternoon (overcast day), fourth this morning bathed in light then last tonight.
|first tree nearly gone|
|Second tree is now a stump as well|
|And despite having tennis elbow the lovely Mr R has dug out at least one stump, yay|
