The garden task today was pruning the lemongrass. A while back I replaced the formal style Lilly Pillys, as they were needing pruning every other week. I hesitated for years (mainly because everyone I mentioned it to, was negative about pulling out the lovely green ball headed things). It has been a great success. They are in a very sunny position and look good all year round. It has provided much more growing room for veggies as the roots of the previous plants were greedy and far reaching.
In summer they go crazy and need a haircut about half way through (now). They are super easy to prune and can look quite good with a very severe chop (in a spiky dramatic sort of way).
