I have one of these... how old is yours and how big. I am always disappointed with mine.

Hi Sal its about six years old now, small, about two foot I always prune it late spring This year its very sparse ,dont know why it might be something to do with the rotten summer we had ....

Lovely Janette and it bears my name (no TT, not Virburnum, lol). I must take a close look at mine, didnt know they smelt nice.

Janette, is your this height because you prune it quite hard? I havent really cut mine back and its about 8 feet high and 4 years old. Dawn

It most likely the hard prunning I give it Dawn that keep,s it small ,my garden isnt that big ,so it has to be kept in check ....Glad I do it, now that I know they can grow so tall :)

Janette ~
When you say you prune it hard ~
Do you mean so that it looks like just a few short sticks by the time you've finished, or do you cut selective branches back to the ground ?
Yours looks so healthy, whereas my Viburnum is more straggly and I reckon a real good trim late spring 2009 could be the answer.
PS. Dawn ~
I'm surprised you didn't know that you smell so good. :o)

Not right to the ground TT .but it get a good chop ,to about half its size ,seems to do it some good ....

I'd guess this robust bloom and even the strength of scent may result from the cut back. Lovely work.

Beautiful.....would really love one of these.

Will take some cuttings Janey and if they take you can have one. Mine's a bit leggy to be honest, so I'll cut it back in late Spring so as not to affect next season's flowering. Thanks for this. I'll check my smell tomorrow TT.

It,s lovely to have something flowering at this time of the year ,

Mine is about 8ft tall , I have to prune it hard every year or it would be even bigger ..................

Ooh...lovely Dawn, that's really kind of you.....looking forward to it!

Hi Janey, looked in my book today and it suggests taking cuttings in Spring, but I've taken a couple today anyway and I'll put them in the greenhouse, if they dont take (which I suspect) I'll take some more in Spring, I'll make a note in my little black book. Dawn
