To often to be a coincidence?

Have you noticed how when you give something the evil eye and plot when and how to get rid of it, it suddenly flowers, buds or shoots?

    😂 Did you leave it there?

    @B3 yes I did. And I chopped the flowers off in fit of rage. That taught it a lesson! It's probably flowering now in a council tip.🤬🤣

    Funny you should start this thread B3. Four years ago I bought myself and a friend a cotinus. My friends one is a thing of beauty and a joy to behold, mine is s*****g pathetic and a disgrace to the gardening world. 
    I'm going outside this very minute and giving it a piece of my mind, telling it to get a grip or it's getting lopped and binned. I might even swear at it.

    See what I mean? The twiggy thing in front of the Solomans Seal. Anyway, it's just had a rousting so I'll see what happens when it comes into leaf this year.

    An interesting experiment @Uff. What do they come from? Might you need to learn some foreign expletives.

    I have 2 climbing hydrangea that my neighbour tells me have beautiful flowers. In the  2 years we have been here, we have seen not a single flower. So I gave them a stern talking to last Autumn and warned them I am planning to replace them with something more beautiful. Low and behold, both are about to flower

    Did your talking to coincide with a lack of pruning by any chance😉

    No, funnily enough this is the first year I have actually had time to prune them since we moved in. I was going for kill or cure
