Sambucus Nigra "Black Lace"

Will I get the flowers though? I saw a 4 year old specimen in late June this year and the flowers were beautiful but my garden is quite small so I guess I'll keep it cut.

I have one of these currently in a 37cm Terracotta Pot. Only planted it in the Summer.

Its doing fine however I'm wondering if the pot will eventually become a bit small. What size container should I be using or would I be better finding a spot in the garden for it?

I would be inclined to cut the foliage back to stop the stress to the plant. Best for it to achieve a good root system now whilst its still warm.

Should make for a much better plant next year

yea thats what I was told too Dove. They arent vertical but the stems are pointing down enough so anything will drain out of it

and they wont freeze in the toilet but my behind will when I sit on it on a cold morning before work!

Im letting them dry first then gonna wrap them up in newspaper. I'll then stick them in the cupboard under the sink in the unheated downstairs loo which can get very chilly in Winter :P

If any of the leaves have gone mushy they are not producing food for the plant so I would cut them off.

They should produce new leaves
