Sandra, was it really 2012 when that poor Choisya trembled with fear at the sight of you and your secateurs?!!

It mingles so well with the other plants ... walk away from it ... and stay away for some time ... :o))

Lol! don't I know it? I cut back my very vigorous Passion Flower and it has promptly died :((

Waddy, I thought I had killed my Passion Flower off, only to see it come back to life 2 years later! It is now growing as well as before I hacked it down so you may find the same happens with yours. :o)
