I agree with Ian ... you want a nice busy shrub so take the flowers off ... equivalent to pinching out.

Pat, is he also telling you about canaries and buses disappearing down holes in the road?  That's what Norwich is also famous for.  I'm a Suffolk girl ... only lived here 22 years so am a relative foreigner

Help with my leycestria

Posted: 21/07/2017 at 10:59

Hi roo 


Can you tell us a bit more about your Leycestria ... is it a Leycestria formosa or another type?


Where is it growing?


A photo or two would be good ... you can upload photos by clicking on the camera icon - if it doesn't work try reducing the size of the photo

 Oh yes, there are some who are desperate for 'personal communication' to make them feel special ... no names no pack drill   but usually that's long established 'Hon. Members'   not usually Newbies who seem genuinely surprised that their message to me hasn't appeared on the thread.  

Will bamboo grow new leaves

Posted: 21/07/2017 at 09:32

That was no gardener ... could possibly have been one of the groundsmen who massacred the gardens where I used to work ........ but a gardener............ not in a million years.


Give it a feed of  chicken manure pellets and water them in ... the nitrogen will encourage new growth from the base.  Then when it's tall enough to screen what you want get the chap back and get him to carefully cut out the old stems from the base.  That'll larn him. 


On the plus side, you should get some good bamboo poles ... do you grow runner beans ?
