What to do?

17 Nov

We don’t really have a yard.  We have a side-yard.  A dog run, if you will.

We planted some plants and tried to make what little we have as nice as possible.

When we first planted this one, it was about 2 feet tall, very pretty plant.

Now its a tree!  It is taller than me and not so pretty anymore.

Here is my dilema: it only grows from the top.  It will grow new leaves but only at the top.  Top looks great, bottom looks scraggly and dying.  If I pull the dead leaves off, then I have just a trunk and it rally does become more tree-like.

Any green-thumbers out there?

Any tips?

    I’m not a green thumber, but I have an option. Cut the tree to the size you want it to be and see what happens… if all else fail you buy something new. Win Win in my book!

    I’m pondering. I’ll show Dwight the pic and see what he thinks too. It WAS cute smaller!
