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



very tall and upright. It didnt flower this year either. Is this quite normal?

Photo attached.

Thank you

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 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!!!!
