I have two Euonymus fortunei shrubs that I need to trim. One thing that I don't like is having to pick up all the clippings from the lawn and boarder after I trim it. Is there a trick to cleaning it up fast?
Good idea. That's what I have been doing with some landscape fabric. I didn't see anyone else in the neighbourhood doing this, so I wondered if I was doing it wrong. I didn't see any aphids, but the leaves are pretty tough to break down into the soil which is why I was cleaning them up.applestar wrote:Euonymus often has aphids and scale infestation on them. If that is the case with yours and you need to remove them, what I would suggest is putting down tarp (can be old vinyl shower curtain, old sheets, etc. -- something tough enough to lift up the pile of clippings by the corners -- before clipping them.
