Bottle Brush

I did that some years ago with a Photinia Red Robin, it's now a lovely 7' standard, but I would not have thought to do it with the Bottle Brush, thank you.

You have given me an idea, I might prune all the underneath of mine and gently prune the top to lift it up, it's the underneath that's scraggly.

Thanks, mine is looking leggy and probably past its best, but I will prune it as suggested and give it another year.

I don't like it that much, been spoiled by the ones in Australia, but it fills a space. So will prune it. Thanks for your response.

Does anyone know why they are so tall, I thought they may be a mutation of some kind.

I bought a packet of Petunia seeds from the pound shop, they are the tallest ones I have ever seen, they are between 16" and 2' tall and are still getting taller, pink, cerise, purple and white and they smell fantastic, can I save some seed and if so when and how. I have filled 3 large boxes, 3 large and 3 small pots for £1.😁😁😁

Meant to say John Innes could work out expensive.

That could work out expensive for 4 planters, would I be ok with top soil, compost and a good feed.
