    It's just flowering...just hope you're not in the South East as the spectre of the box caterpillar has made it a terrible gamble to grow.

  • Yep flowering at this time of year is not unusual. If it bothers you then you can give it a trim. Be sure to sweep up any leaves or flowers you cut off to keep pests and blight at bay...
