It may be that you have to put up with this every year in April/May. What kind is the tree? I have seen roads in Bristol where the lime trees make a terrible mess of cars parked under them.
Isn't a mahogany a jungle tree? Would it like to be somewhere hot and dry? Wouldn't it prefer hot and shaded?
Hi Victoria, that's what I understood too.
If they root so easily they are willows. They are sold as room decorations, I think. I don't imagine they are supposed to be put in water.
Ah, so it is not the 'Chelsea chop' but normal plant maintenance. We do the same with geraniums after flowering.
I thought the 'Chelsea Chop' was all about delaying flowering. Not about tidying things up after flowering. That is why I was querying the need to cut back primulas.
Rooks love them.
They need good light, but not sunlight or their leaves get burnt. A North-facing window is good.
Make sure you don't spread Spanish bluebells to a wood. They are a curse.
Lyn, why are you cutting back your primulas? I consider them a Spring flower; should they be cut back?
