I can hardly believe it I've got a bud on this at last!! I was thinking it would never flower and what do I find. I was nearby it and watering the garden. What a surprise it would've been had it flowered before I saw the bud. Thrilled I sure am. Just can't wait to see colour at last 😊😊💕💕❤❤

I hoped for some flowering this year but Ms Honeysuckle's making me wait. Should I feed it or does it take a couple of years for it to really establish itself? I bought it last year 😊😊❤❤

@moore.794 Ah thank you. I'm too late for the Spring feed, silly me I should've googled it! I've not heard of Bloom Booster so thank you again 😊😊

@moore.794 Ah I'm glad you told me that, as the shrub is good for foliage it's flowers are in short supply. Or should I say none at all 😮

it is an invasive in our area. i have spent over 25 years destroying and there are still more to get rid of.

@scarskates I remember you said you got your wheel from a local site. I just wonder which one? You were so lucky to get such a sturdy good looking wheel 😊😊

My new garden ornament! I just had to have this, plus it was a bargain at £9.99 and it's as light as a feather. It might not last long a friend says but I'll store it before (dare I mention it?) Winter 😮❤❤
