 Hi Mattbee87.

I'm really baffled because if you look at the photo just right of the hanging bird feeders I already have a bay growing there.The mystery shrub which I assumed was my honeysuckle which grew for years in a pot is now growing into something quite different. If you look behind the bay, thats where this thing is growing, and seems to be growing taller by the day....

I transfered this honeysuckle from a large pot into the ground. I did this last Autumn, and for some reason it has taken on quite a different appearence. It now looks like a small fruit tree, infact people have asked me what fruit tree im growing. Its

Thank you Verdun. I inspected it a lot today, and it seems happy in the rose garden.

If it doesn't survive, then i'll start again.

Enjoy your weekend. Weather looks very promising

Hi Verdun. Thank you for the reply

Yes it is the hardy type, and its called Salvia Sylvestris ' mainacht'. It is a neat clump-forming variety...so it says on the tin.

Fingers crossed, will keep a close eye on it.

To all you Salvia experts out there...

yesterday I moved my salvia from my very rocky gravely herb garden to my rose bed inorder to surround the roses. When I did manage to uproot it, I found only a few strands of root, and the root ball was very small. Will it grow as well as it did in my herb garden??

i've attached a photo to show you the variety.

Many thanks!!!!
