Was it as tall as 8' Seaburn ?
Did you cut back into very old wood ?
oh yes near 10' and the stems were 3" in diam nearer the bottom. It took a lot of cutting down. I shredded most of it and today I put the shreddings on the borders.
Wow! I might chop mine a bit more, then! I am far too gentle with them.
It is growing a way well though i wont have flowers this year. and i still have the pest that eats the leaves grrrrr.
One of mine keeps dying back from one area - I've pruned out a number of dead branches! There's no sign of anything eating it, though.
the leaves look like i have had the shotgun out !
Mine is about 9 years old and had got tatty also been eaten so I cut about 1/2 - 4ft off all over and thinned out the centre it has recovered very well grown back about 2 ft already hardly any flowers or berries but I expected that. The leaves were very healthy looking until I noticed this week something is eating it again. One thing I did do was water it quite a bit as it was so dry this year.
Drc, did it suffer from 'Leaf shot' if so how did you get rid of it? or have you. I had it once, gave up and binned it.

Heron I got rid of one because it was badly eaten and in shade, but this one had seemed to recover I assume its the viburnam beetle but I thought that was only in summer? this has happened in the last 3-4 weeks.
Probably the mild weather Drc.
Thats what I thought as it is still so mild here even with the storm.
How do I say thanks?
