Very welcome Kerry. Love forsythia. Tried them twice with no luck. The second one expired as a result of my husband not being able to control his new weed whacker. He whacked the heck out of my little one. It never recovered 😩🤣😂

@jeatacake thank you Jeff 😀 noticed I need to remove that stray, bald branch that’s heading for the skies😅

jeatacake

It's odd how some plants do that. That branch maybe forgot it was in a pot! Looks better all in proportion 💛

@jeatacake might be telling me it wants a bigger pot 😂 but am in the middle of a spring clean up so it’ll be getting the chop soon ✂️

comment
jeatacake

Sounds like the best move for now. Might be worth trying the bit you chop off as a cutting maybe?👍

@jeatacake I’d never have thought to try cuttings 😜 great idea, thank you 😁

You're welcome 👍I have tried them before many years ago & from memory it was quite successful.

@hkyfvr @ejonesy they look incredible when they’re in full bloom. Look pretty boring the rest of the year but worth it for that yellow explosion 💛💛💛

Yes, I've been outside a lot lately. All of a sudden, spring has most definitely sprung!

@jeatacake everything changes so fast at the moment! I haven’t done as much as I hoped to. Always an obstacle jumping in the way recently 😔

@jeatacake he’ll be jumping onto the adoption list before long! 🤣 caught him running around with my zebra mallow hanging out of his mouth today 😐 digs up my plants for the sheer fun of it 😭

jeatacake

Oh no 🙈 At least most of your plants are in biggish pots & out of reach. He could cause havoc in borders! 😯

@jeatacake and he would no doubt! Caught him in many a pot this week but have discovered it’s because a cat is laying in them and he can smell the scent 😜
