Does anyone know when European Spindle starts to come into leaf? Mine look dead!
Wait a minute, it's still light, I'll go and check mine
Sorry Mrs G, I've got leaves and flower buds
Mine still looks dead, I'm sure it will be fine.
Ha ha looks like a wait and see job then.
I nearly dug it up last year because it looked so lifeless, but I got distracted and then it burst into life, so I just leave it to get on with it now.
I have two small European spindles that I bought last autumn which are now out in leaf and one is about to flower, but I am in the sunny south. One is about a week behind the other because it's in a shady spot, I expect yours will be fine though.
Thanks everyone we're in Leicestershire so I'll wait and see
Hey Mrs. G, It's alive, noticed well developed buds while I was beheading a fern earlier. It didn't look like that the other day.
Thanks Lisa. I gave the bark a little scratch today and it was green underneath-yay!
