Last year I was so proud of my Lilac which after much nurturing following our arrival here produced masses of beatiful blooms, I called it “The Star”. Not so this year.
I didn,t prune heavily but I think the harsh winter has taken it’s toll. It is perfectly healthy but from what I can see of the forming buds there are about a dozen flowers. Anyone else had this happen?
Due to the ice and snow I have lost 2 Escallonia, a Pieris, Datura, 2 Hebes, 3 Cordylynes and a Eucalyptus.
The Eucalyptus I was not unhappy about because it was due for removal. I understand that there is a new Cordylyne disease which incorporated with the harsh winter saw off a lot of them.
Sorry this blog is such a tale of woe.
