@crabby58 @hkyfvr @ShelleySnyder @sharonhayden thank you ladies 😁 it’s sad to see in one way, knowing all the summer flowers will be gone soon 😥 but the colours in autumn are so beautiful you can’t be too sad 😛
@jeatacake I was reading about them yesterday and was shocked they’re so invasive! Never had one sucker yet but hope for a couple so I can get free trees 😂 did notice my yellow magnolia keeps throwing up baby plants from the base though and wondered if they’d be worth growing on 🤔
Good idea you're growing all your plants in pots. This one sends out so mamy suckers! They're the bane of my dad's spring tidy up as he planted some opposite my family home in an empty piece of land and now every year he has to control so they can still enjoy other shrubs in that space.
@ublaszko I had no idea it was so invasive. The corkscrew hazel seems to grow a new sucker every week so guess I just cut them down like with that. I bet it looks amazing when it’s in bloom though! Your dad has good taste. I got this because my nan used to have one in her garden years ago 😁
😁😁 And it looks great in autumn when it goes red. It looks fantastic with an underplanting of creeping navelwort which is what I've been admiring at the university this week. I thought my rose was bad with suckers but it only got 2 or 3 last year 😁😁😁
@ublaszko I can’t wait to see it turn red 😍 never think to under plant most things 😜 will have to give it some thought. And I’m now in love with creeping navalwort 🤣 the suckers from roses, can they not be used as cuttings?
