Useful video from Geoff.   Much of my chop is smaller tender plants like comfrey.  I chop and drop when these plants start closing in on the mother plant in the trio.  My B.Locust and some other "trees" are getting bigger and I will have to take into consideration the time of year.

I find that I have enough biodiversity at this point that I'm doing chop and drop as I weed and clear some room between plants but I will have to Pollard to keep the nitrogen fixers in check.

Who knew that furniture could be so violent? Put this tiny ad out there to see what happens:
