For the first time since 2008, we are here long enough to work on our backyard as well as the gardens. I have bought a jasmine vine to plant along Manu's dry stone wall which we look on all the time.

I would definitely like the dying elderberry cut down. That would give us more sunshine (a good thing when it's not 35 degrees). Then I would consider cutting down the bay tree.
I would really like to trim the Oleander to about 3 feet tall, then, with more sunshine, it might grow straight and grow more flowers. Now it grows horizontally looking for the light.
What do you think?
