Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill'.... about 4 years old, and first year I've had a decent number of flowers.... not for the impatient gardener but worth the wait...

Acer

..I always think clipping to a severe shape, or topiary work must be a male thing...I find it quite ghastly...whether it be Box, Yew, Forsythia, or Conifer...

I would have thought with an Acer, if you just let it grow it would eventually form it's natural shape again.. may take some time...alternatively, I might prune it severely back, cutting out the 'ball' completely and leaving the outermost branches with outward facing buds... if you know what I mean...lol...

..I hope you all have a lovely time and that you are NT members, as I don't think it's cheap to get in... last time I went it was a rare 'Free' day on the Sunday...about this time of year... they don't appear to do this any more... are you going into the house..? I didn't get time to do so.... I saw people taking their shoes off on entry...

...so make sure you've changed your socks...

What are people sowing right now?
