Gardener prevails

Armed with pruning saw, spade and loppers I attacked the condemned blackcurrant for a second time this afternoon.

Pleased to report no more breakages and extraction completed.

Extraction is the right word too. Bending and twisting the rootball around while the final root was still intact put me in mind of the childhood pastime of playing with a wobbly tooth just before it breaks free.
