What can I do about this?
This ceanothus is in a corner of the front garden. From the front it looks dead but from the back (I can see this side from the kitchen window) it's in flower. Do I cut it back, cut it down or leave well alone and see what happens? If I cut the stem away, I'll be left with an eight foot lollipop!
The sorry little plant to the right of the pic suffered as well. It's a mature choisya that was moved when I gave the front a makeover and it was always going to be hit or miss if it survived but what with that and the frost the poor little thing didn't really stand a chance. Off to the Garden Show in Edinburgh tomorrow so a replacement is on the cards.
