Pruning Lilac

That depends-if you prune it now that will probably mean losing next years flowers-they are best pruned after flowering around May or so.

So the choice is- do you lose a years flower and tame it now?

Whatever you do they are the toughest of plants and respond well to pruning

I'd go for light rather than reflective. If it's really dark there's no light to reflect. Mirrors have implications for birds. They try to fly through them, not surprising really, a well placed mirror looks like a way through.

Do birds fly through mirrors?- I seem to recall being told they avoid them as they see another bird flying towards them?-don't garden designers use mirrors in their designs to give the impression of gardens looking bigger?

Happy to be proved wrong

OH is going to swimming so I will have to be nice to any door knockers-we usually get a warning so am guessing the usual crowd aren't doing anything-and it is chucking it down.



What's for tea?

Could the bright silvery particles have come from the compost?

You say heavy-if it lined -that is just at the sides?-I am just asking that as it may be a drainage problem?
