Dwarf forsythia - what do you think?

Posted: 20/03/2017 at 09:47

There is a very pretty small Japanese flowering cherry which is a small shrub rather than a tree - there's loads in the garden centres at the moment and I'm finding it hard to resist getting one   It has lovely delicate pale flowers, and then really good autumn leaf colour ... I can't think of it's name (think it has lots of J's in it)  ... give me a minute and I'll look it up ......

Hello TheLittleBird 


The sunny blooms of forsythia certainly brighten the garden up at this time of year.  My only caveat is that after its flowers are over it's just a rather nondescript shrub with green leaves.  Not even berries or autumn colour to look forward to.  I would only give it a place in my garden if I had enough space to plant other 'focal points' nearby to take over. If that's the case, then go for it - underplanting with bulbs is a lovely idea.

Thanks Topbird - that would've been lovely   Afraid I'm not often over your way - my lot are mainly based around Woodbridge, Aldeburgh, Framlingham area ... and of course Wonky in Ipswich.  


We'll have to plan something?

Morning Joyce, Hosta, LillyP, and Topbird  


Topbird - I'm visiting family down near Aldeburgh 


We had rain in the night; it woke me up around 4 so I was awake too Hosta ... but I don't think it was enough to do much good ...... the pond is still quite low.

Pat   We used to get occasional long power cuts when I lived in rural Suffolk.  Lots of big old oaks, elms and ash trees which would drop limbs onto power cables.

We've never had a power cut of more than a few minutes since I've lived in Norwich, but I'm still a country girl and have candles, matches and torches in the desk drawers in the front hall 

What is this???
