Talkback: What to prune in winter

Posted: 06/02/2014 at 19:51

Speaking of choisya, when we moved here 3years ago we inherited a large, really wayward one. I cut part of it off altogether and some down to the ground, the rest I left as it was.  This plant has barely flowered since, that's 2 summers, will it recover or should I chop ALL of it down and hope for the best.

I did feed it last year and I would like to keep it but would love to see it flowering.

I hope I'm not hijacking this thread by the way.


Big garden bird watch

Yes I get very annoyed with all the mail coming through the door, we are members of RSPB and I don't like the money we pay each year wasted on this sort of thing.

We also have a stump......and a stump it will remain!! It was hard enough cutting down, chopping up and disposing of a 25foot conifer no way am I going to spend anymore time and energy attacking the stump.

I wish you luck with whichever method you decide on.
