    A fast growing shrub which is semi-evergreen, only losing its leaves in hard winter weather, or if caught in a cold wind. The flowers cover the plants in early summer and the wrinkled petals are like tissue paper. The leaves and stems are sticky to touch allowing the plant to tolerate salt laden winds. Makes a lovely informal hedge in mild areas and a great plant to grow in a hot, dry border or near the sea.

  • Forsythia-Lynwood

    Forsythia x intermedia Lynwood

    £13.99

    Pot Size: 3L
    Position: Sun or part shade
    Soil: Any good garden soil
    Rate of Growth: Medium
    Flowering Period: Spring
    Flower Colour: Yellow
    Hardiness: Hardy
    Eventual Height: 1.8m
    Eventual Spread: 1.2m
    Garden Care: Prune some of the old branches to the ground after they have flowered if needs be. This will encourage new ones that will flower in subsequent years. Prune upright shoots by half in summer to shape your plant. Feed with a slow release fertiliser each spring and top up the soil with a mulch of garden compost.

    One of the first shrubs to flower and a lovely fanfare for spring after the winter months. Upright branches are festooned in bright flowers before the leaves appear, cheating any frosts and looking great in a vase as well as at the back of a border or as an informal hedge. The pale green leaves change colour to yellow in autumn before falling for the winter. Easy to grow and a stalwart of the shrubbery.
