Saw this in London yesterday & so envious, as I have one which has never flowered. Oh to have milder winters up north!

This looks like the one I used to have called 'blue bird' my dad ousted it from his garden so I took it in,but I dug it up the other year because it stopped producing 😌

I may try digging it up & having it in the greenhouse to see if that prompts flowering next year @harebell & @gjones

It could work...strange that it won't flower...is it quite well established? some shrubs are a few years old before they flower 🤔...mine already was with my dad owning it first,and had lots of flowers in until it got to the stage were it was struggling to produce leaves even so got dug up

It is as if it only just makes it through the winter each year & spends summer trying to recover again. It's never threatened to flower in over 10 years. I'll try overwintering it in the greenhouse this time & see how it goes next year. If still no flowers, it may get the chop! @harebell
