Gorgeous Julia and a fabulous shape too. I too pruned the lower branches of mine, though mine will be a taller shape. It'll let some air through it too. I love the long spikes of flowers..

Do you Janey, it's trimmed about 3 times a year but still gives a great show in December.

That is a lovely Mahonia,Julia ,I'm hoping the ones which were butchered on a neighbours banking,will have some flowers this year,as it is is all starting to grow again !

They are quite robust shrubs.Mine doesn't seem to mind regular pruning. Good sign there is growth,Sandra.

Yes,It will probably have done a lot of the shrubs good,but could have been done with more finesse ,by someone who knew what they were doing, and not at nesting time,as Blackbirds used to nest there,so I hope they come back next year..

I have the Mahonia Japonica which doesn't flower until early spring. I do like the way you have shaped this!

It is a gorgeous show of colour, Julia! I'm thinking now I should maybe buy a couple for the bund?? Sandra mentioned her neighbours banking and had a light bulb moment!!!
These would look lovely! What do you think?

Kate,they are a structured , stable shrubThe one in the photo has to be reigned in a few times in the year...there is a smaller one with delicate leaves..'Soft Caress'...no thorns either.Grows 1mx1 ...it depends on the space you have...I haven't mentioned the beautiful fragrance too.Hope that helps you,Kate x

Thank you, Julia! It’s definitely a big help. I’m definitely going with this next year for the bund, fragrant and beautiful - how could I not!!!! 😉
