Time spent with cats is never wasted.

Do you suggest I take it out while it's still little? I am committed to pruning it every year, but I also heard that the roots will end up going 20 feet deep so down the road if it does become a mess I think it will be hard to get out. I think it's in a bad spot - it's right in the middle of my perennial garden.A Azazel If you don't prune forsythia, it will turn into a real mess and it doesn't take long. Years ago, our neighbors had a forsythia hedge between our properties. It was absolutely gorgeous and it was an absolute pain to take care of. We were constantly pruning our side of the hedge because it would grow out of control. We'd have to dig up the suckers. We were so glad when they took that hedge out. I think we gained almost eight feet of our property back!
