Black Lace 

I planted a Sambucus “Black Lace” a year ago. It was my husband’s choice as he likes acers and that kind of thing. I read up on it and realised I should have cut it back in September. This explains why it’s a bit leggy. I will make sure I prune it at the end of the summer to strengthen it as much as possible. 

Anyway it’s flowered in the last three days. 


It’s always exciting when things spring into life!

    1. Thanks! I’m worried it’s a bit weak and when they all flower the flowers will weigh it down(!) 😆

    1. I’m really pleased with ours. It’s doubled in size in a year but then I never pruned it! 😆
