Ceanothus

Posted: 13/02/2013 at 22:48

Hi Bunny,

I live on  North Northumberland coast.Have an evergreen Ceanothus about 11 years old,10 feet high & 20 feet wide.It catches the strong North East winds here,but apart from lightly pruning after flowering in June and chucking some general fertiliser around the base in Spring it gives me a fantastic display every year.It sits adjacent to a hawthorn hedge so does have a little protection.Our soil is solid blue clay.

As discodave mentioned,thery grow like wildfire and do need some shaping to keep them under control.Will take some photos when in bloom.

Good luck.gary.
