It is nice finally to have some color in the yard.
The forsythia bush on the east side of the house is large and doing well. The two newest bushes in the front yard are stunted because they are competing for root space with a large tree. Some aggressive root feeding may help.
NOTE TO SELF: Although it already is a bit crowed, I believe the front yard could use two or three more forsythia bushes for a bigger splash of early spring color. Since the two newest bushes are growing slowly, it is advisable to plant stock that is more mature.
