The poor Skimmia has had a haircut, sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind, hopefully will repay me next year. Flowers were going over and its never been cut back before. On a positive note found my Salvia and Nepeta shooting up hidden by the leaves 💚😄👍

@Purplebird I was surprised they were even interested with the leaves being quite waxy. I have the nice side facing the house, so it doesn't look quite as bad 🙄

@Keely Hi Keely. I have to say in my experience they don't. And birds are evidently attracted to red berries first, followed by orange then yellow ❤️💛

@mikethegardener I didn't think they did Mike as they are left on every year and never get eaten so thank you for clarification I will compost them 👍🙂
