Thanks for all the info.
At Home Depot the kid in the nursery dept. said Indian Hawthorne was a fast grower. A lot they know I guess.
My regular Gardner. is the one who tells me fertilize often. I will cut way back, and tell him too much fertilizer on the bushes is not good.
His answer to everything is more water and more fertilizer.
His helpers do not understand English,so I must stay outside and watch them, as they are known to pull flowers and leave weeds.
It’s a common problem with the gardners in my area.
Yesterday, Saturday had a burst of energy. I cut roses for 2 hours, trimmed some tree branches, vacuumed half the house, and washed floors in 3 rooms.
Today, it’s laundry, and more rose trimming.
My niece is staying with me, and helping to get stuff ready to take to charity. Us Americans have so much stuff,it’s time to give to charities, so they can get things to those less fortunate.
I’m a big believer in donating, to help others.
Hope your thumb is getting better.
Thanks again for all your good advice.
