Hi David, yes, there are gaps in a few threads and whole threads have gone if they were started by the person you have ignored.

The latter has proved to be an advantage.

Is it as odd as the one I posted yesterday Bob?

sambucus black lace cutting back? confusing advice

Posted: 10/08/2014 at 15:01

It's just a variety of bog standard elder. Hardwood cuttings would be the way to go for propagation.

Sparko, cut it back hard at the end of winter, that's what makes it bush out. If you don't you'll just have an extension of what you've got.

You can snip the ends off now if they're swamping other things

shallow dishes of sugar syrup, they might drown in jars. I've never heard oft that but my GH is under-used to my shame and there's nothing that needs insects in there

I live surrounded by agricultural desert with a spray-happy farmer but I do have quite a large plot. My flowers are chosen for the bees etc but I also have room to grow those native plants that the larval stages of butterflies and moths need. 

I also have untouched parts where nesting species can be unmolested

Hi Steve, welcome

You need to wait til they're ripe, an old technique is to put a paper bag over their heads when they're nearly ripe to collect them. I've never lost any of mine but maybe your birds have developed a taste for them.

If it looks like you're losing a lot you could put the bag on early but don't let it stay there wet or you might get rotting

Thanks Bob, I'll try and remember

Coprosma Pacific Sunset

Not that particular variety, no.

I don't think they're very hardy, I failed to get one through the winter on an unheated GH. They might like soil a bit less alkaline than mine as well
