when tidying up the garden yesterday I couldnt believe my eyes, our ceanothus has starting to flower ! I hope it still flowers in the spring. Other plants acting unusual are the dogwood also flowering again and the garya still has its catkins ??
Well, the primroses have just started to flower.
I too noticed last week that my Ceanothus has also got some flowers buds. It was flowering in Spring when I bought them, didn't realise they could flower twice in a year. I have a variegated variety, El Dorado, very pretty.
I would like to clip them into a formal hedge shape, but have read they don't like being pruned. Does anybody have any advice about how to do so, or should I completely avoid?
Don't cut them back too hard, or they will die. That is what I did, and that's what happened.
Thanks all. It was just a light prune I was thinking of, but they have grown so much that it would be a bit more than that, if I were to prune them in line with the edge of the container. I think I'll leave well alone and enjoy them as nature intended. I have topiaritis.....now what else can I trim?
