Pruning Sambucus Nigra black lace

Posted: 08/03/2016 at 13:32


 

I know this is an old thread, but I wanted to prune my Black Lace this morning, so I thought I would just check on Google and this thread came up! I missed it when it started as we were away.

I pruned it to about a metre last year, this morning it was about 8 feet tall. It's now back to a metre. It usually has a few flowers, but when it was young it was covered in them. It was a Mother's Day present from son in 2007.

Here it is in May 2014.

Morning all. Was -5° but it's sunny and the sky is blue. Ground is like a bog though. Must get some more pruning done while I've the chance.

Talking of weight, well done Hosta, I found an old exercise book yesterday from about 10 years ago. I was on a diet and had written down my weight as it went down. Starting weight was over a stone lighter than I am now

Have been sorting photos to get some enlargements developed of the grandchildren to frame. Taken ages.

Gardening was out, heavy showers, cold.

Made a loaf of bread and lasagne is in the oven.

Washing out, Chrissy? Good heavens! It never dries at all outside here in winter.

New wall planters need advice on planting them up :)

Pinched it, Frank?  I got there first!

Good morning Marion. Only 1° here too. I wonder if it will warm up this afternoon so I can get on with the pruning.
