I had a boy like that DB, my hubby used to walk the floor with him. We had adopted him at 7 weeks.

I have even crawled my way round his pram at times. he was short of nothing, got new clothes every week, and a new toy every week but was soon bored and then screamed.

He once showed me up in a cafe. He screamed like I had whacked him one... :lol: Talk about sweat running off him from under his helmet it was like his brains was leaking clear water. :lol: Temper you see DB.

Enjoy your daughter and looking forward to seeing her picture sometime.

Good luck.

The 2 footer and 5 footer were only planted last year so I doubt the rootballs will be huge on them, actually the 2 footer was moved at the start of the year so should be fine as its still quite loose in the ground (staked)
My 3 footer may be another story as its solid in the ground.

I presume if I cant dig it up I could chainsaw it off at floor level, I didn't plant deep only 6-8" so hopefully it wont be too hard to get up.

Not looking forward to digging out the trachys and waggie.
Try to dig it rather than chainsaw.
