scotch laburnum
scotch laburnum £42.99
Position: full sunSoil: well-drained soilRate of growth: fast-growingFlowering period: May to JuneHardiness: very hardy A small, spreading tree with weeping branches that is perfect for smaller gardens. In late spring and early summer slender racemes of brilliant, golden-yellow flowers seem to drip from the branches creating a luminous display. An excellent specimen plant, that is best appreciated when not overcrowded. Garden care: When planting, incoporate lots of well-rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole and stake firmly. Laburnums dont need much pruning, but you may want to remove any diseased or crossing branches. It is essential that any pruning work is carried out between late summer to mid winter as the sap will ‘bleed’ heavily at other times.
