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

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
