Lilac cuttings

Posted: 25/09/2013 at 14:23

I had lilac bushes and tree for thirty-six years which I took as cuttings from a derlict site.I just took stick cuttings and shoved them in the ground and they have grown and moved with us three times .Alas a virus has struck and they have died but of course they dont go on forever .

Where did it go to?

It has been a lovely summer but not all plants did well and keeping up with it all even thou I am now retired seems to need more time.

they do not take kindly to being pruned and it will have to be a self fertilizing or you will need two.They like a sheltered spot and I know they will take off and some chopping will be needed but for the first while just train it along ,

the roses will form on other stems,It does seem  awful but thats how it works and this time of year it will not flower again.but next year when you do this they will grow new flowers ,you will have wait a little while but they will appear ,if you dont you will have only one showing and the bush will become straggly.

Best plants for creating privacy?

I  think pyracanthia is a good one ,I have one in the front of my house next to a wall and it is giving privacy and good colour as well as preventing unwanted visitors.
