Stunning! Just love them! 👌🏼💛Have always wanted one of these but because of the kids and the dogs have never got one! It occurred to me the other day that I could plant one in the front garden! 🙈🙄 and really Ann?! There are loads round here! 🌼💛 @thomasrat3

Used to be a lovely one at the local school gates but I think the Headmistress was petitioning to have it cut down because they we're poisonous 🤔@rachelbrooks

Oh what a shame Ann, but that's why I have never planted one as well, worried about the dogs or the boys 😏 @thomasrat3

Close up of the flowers - I think this year I'm going to try and attempt to deadhead and cut of the seed pods - whilst I love the effect of the pods dangling down later in the autumn and winter, unfortunately I'm forever weeding out seedlings in my flowerbeds! Also, the seeds are poisonous if eaten 😳

The plant will only be more vigorous for it. It's win win for you and it as you'll have an even prettier display next spring and won't have to pull up as many plants.

Morning everyone 👋🏼 - yesterday's garden picture sparked some conversations about my lovely Laburnum trees, so I thought today I'd post a better closeup. I managed to catch it after work last night before it got too dark 😁

Nice pic, you've jogged a memory from when I was a kid 😘 really old laburnum in a garden I grew up in. Had a next door neighbour kid tryed to climb it, the tree bent and .. Boinged ( if that's a word) him Tarzan style threw the air 😂😂😂😂

Ooh, you just reminded me to get a Laburnum this year! 😄

richard.spicer.7906

😀 lovely! I would thoroughly recommend getting one. I get plenty of seedlings but not sure if they grow true or not. I have two trees actually but the second one is a very week now (it must be about 50years old) and it hasn't flowered or leafed well for a number of years. I've decided to grow climbers up the trunk to see if I can fill out the branches with more foliage and flowers to stop it looking so sparse! Honeysuckle and a trumpet vine. @Patiorose

Great idea Rich @richard.spicer.7906 ! I hardly have any shrubs or trees without at least one clematis growing up them. One of my apple trees is on its last legs so I'm using a clematis and a climbing rose to clothe it. 😄

richard.spicer.7906

Oh that sounds interesting, I hadn't even thought about trying it for some of my other shrubs, but come to think of it a do have some very big lilacs that I'm sure wouldn't mind a clematis or two scrambling through it! 😉👍🏼 @Patiorose

Yes! Lilacs are a great example of a shrub/tree that is pretty dull after flowering so great host for a #viticella clematis. In my first garden I grew Mme. Julia Correvon through my purple #Lilac. In my new garden I have a #White garden with a #white #Lilac, so I've planted #C. Miss Bateman beside it. But any of the small later flowering clems work well in large shrubs/small trees. I 😍 Love 😍 C. Flammula triternata rubromarginata. It has gorgeous flowers en masse and wonderful almond scent 😘

I love my laburnum but not sure how much longer I will have it. The trunk has a big hole in it 😢😢😢
