Mine took a few years to 'get going'. I noticed today that the flowers are just beginning to form, so if we get some warm weather, I hope mine will be flowering soon. The flowers form at the end of the branches.
I agree with you Valerie - the crowds put me off - so I much prefer to see it on TV. I went to the first ever Gardeners World live in Birmingham and it was bliss as there were no crowds as nobody seemed to know about it.
Thanks for the handy tip dambuster as it obviously works.
OO7 - This is the first one I've heard for years. We used to hear them regularly in our village, up in the woods. We heard this one today in a forested area near us.
Very interesting Jimmy.
Hi Tracey - do you want something that flowers or are you looking for a shrub type plant, as you say you want it quite tall (how tall?) What sort of pet too?
Heard our first cuckoo this afternoon in our walk in the forest. We also saw a wild boar with a family of piglets.
And thanks too Nut. I will let her know. She is not too precious about her lawn so that advice will be fine
Thanks RunnyBeak - I'll tell her to grin and bear it till it goes on its own.
Ha Ha Steve - nice one - we did see two horses in the meadow on our walk - maybe she is hallucinating.
No Nut I don't know the size but she was waving her arms out quite wide when describing them!
A friend of mine says she has two horseshoe shaped marks on her lawn and wonders what it is. I suspect it is a fungus that is causing it, but has anyone else experience this and how did you get rid of it?
