Leogirl, let`s have some pics please.
You are correct Lenny.
Don`t prune the Lilac, leave it to it`s own devices, BUT start feeding weekly with a high potash fertiliser. This should encourage flowering next nyear.
Honeysuckle is a woodland plant so wouldn`t be affected by one tree. Feed the plants weekly with a high potash fertiliser to ensure flowering next season.
Going by the seed heads it looks like a form of Arum italicum.
If they must be trimmed back, then the best time to do it is immediately after flowering. This will allow the plant time to set new flower buds for next year.
As has been said Phil, try and post a pic. If we see it we WILL identify it for you.
Actually obelixx, you get rid of the leaves/ bracts and eat the chokes.
So where does everyone live and garden? Marion is obviously in Bristol. I am just across the water from her in Cwmbran, South East Wales, though I also garden in Newport and Cardiff .lol
