My lilac shrub is blooming, and I’d like to bring some of the blooms inside. But since the tree is only about 3 feet tall at this point, and I see that snipping blooms means actually snipping off the branch tip, can someone tell me if this will help or hinder future growth? Does the tree see losing its branch tips as encouraging growth, or the opposite?
And this lacy little blue thing was part of a wildflower seed packet assortment. That packet did unusually well for seeds (for me). Does anyone know what this flower is?
Is there anything better than fresh flowers?
