64/366: wishin’ and hopin’

Wishing and hoping that a plant would stay the same size, as in the Case of the Castewallen Gold Conifers, is futile. Had they remained the 1993 height, I would have been ecstatic, but they continued to flourish, eventually overtaking the garden and shading the bedroom at the rear of the house to such an extent that the light had to be on throughout the day!

Photos from 1994 0nwards show their amazing growth, which leads to the lesson for today: research the plants you are about to put in your garden. Of course, sometimes a plant just happens to love a certain area and will grow larger than its predicted size, but it is a lesson I have learnt the hard way.
