My gardener, to be helpful, has just cut down my philadelphus to about 3feet. It was pretty old, and the stems were very woody - I was intending to cut out some of the older stems, but he must have misunderstood, and now all I have is a clump of very short stems. There is now a large space in my garden, which was previously filled by this lovely tree. Can anyone please tell me if this will grow again?

Nickfelix: It will but you won't get much flower this year, I'm afraid. However, in future years it will flourish.

our mock orange seems to have a sort of blight on the top part of the plant. It is flowering beautifully, but it is covered in what looks like small black 'seeds'. my husband has sprayed it with soapy water. What can we do?

Annie: Philadelphus lewisii is very lightly scented and, in my opinion, there is not much point to a Philadelphus without strong scent. Did yours out and plant another. Jeanne: It will. Is it newly planted?
