flowering privet

Privet is perhaps the commonest hedging plant there is. Yes, cuttings will be easy, but it won't flower until it is tall. That takes some years.

There were comments on the forum recently about flowering privet. Lots of people don't like the smell. So let your neighbours have a good sniff before they take cuttings!

And do not re-hang the gates until they have dried out completely (indoors) and been treated with several coats of preservative/varnish. A good one.

Is it leaning away from the prevailing wind? If it is, reducing its height considerably will help it to bush up.

Only feed when the tomatoes are forming on the plant, not before.

Now, I don't, but if you have a great deal of foliage are you over-feeding the plants?

Treat them a bit mean, then they'll produce flowers and fruit.
