@hkyfvr Diane, I just heard that Katy has left the app. Is she ok?? 😦

I was so very sad to hear this. I think the size of her gardens and keeping it maintained has become too much for she and Glyn. Plus they want to downsize the flower garden and concentrate on vegetables. Their gardens are very large and as we get older it just gets too much for us. She told me she was ok but just needed time to work all this out. I will miss her dearly as will we all. So few Canadians on gtags now. I learned so much from her and really feel a bond there. Hope she will come back

@hkyfvr there aren’t so many Canadian gt’ers and now one less ☹️ I’ll miss her dearly but I understand her needing the time to do other things. GYO is difficult enough at any age but as we get on it becomes much more work, and they’ve both had health issues too 😞 please pass on my love to her if you email 💚

This and wintersweet will be lovely once they're both in flower. 💕💕💕 I have my eyes out for this viburnum and one of the Chinese witch hazels. I wouldn't have the patience to wait for wintersweet to flower 😅

@ublaszko do you not have a witch hazel already? A red one? Oh no, do they take a long time to flower? I know nothing about this (or pretty much any) plant 😬

comment

I just read in Garden Answers that wintersweet can take up to 7 years to flower 😥😂 I have a pinkish loropetalum which is a relative of witch hazels but it's without scent. I'd like to get a witch hazel for fragrance.

Oh no, don't get rid off it 😨 Hopefully, your one has already been growing for a couple of years before you bought it. I have a climbing hydrangea that's supposed to take 7 years to flower but it still looks nice in the meantime. It has a really nice framework and shiny brown stems. I'm sure there's more to wintersweet than just the flowers in winter. 😊

@ublaszko I always am disheartened when plants arrive and have little or nothing to show. Learning to have more patience but 7 years is a long time 😜 climbing hydrangeas at least look interesting without flowers 😊

@ublaszko the price difference is usually ridiculous! But I’ve learned by waiting til the end of the season the online shops sell plants soooo cheap!

@ublaszko I got 6 scented shrubs (can’t remember which ones 🤣) for £5 a few weeks ago. At that price it doesn’t even matter if they don’t work out 😛
