Isn’t it noticeable how behind we are this year Christine, so many plants just nowhere near last year’s stage of growth. So hoping we don’t have a sudden hot spell that kills off what should be spring flowers too soon 😐

How tall is your tree, @grandmagizzy and do you keep it to a certain height? We've just planted a small #magnolia in the front, i want to keep it quite low, in line with our #japanesemaple so it doesn't block ☀️ to the windows

comment
grandmagizzy

Hi Kim @Mikekally the magnolia is approx 15ft was here when we moved in - 1993, considerably smaller then. We have removed a few lower branches due to my husband's grass mowing issues 😀but never taken any out of the top. Would imagine regular trim would keep yours under control 👍🏼
