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
