Must have been someone else's hydrangea and stipa. I have one young hydrangea Vanilla Strawberry and no grasses.

Ornamental Trees for Front Garden

I was thinking it had to be evergreen, but actually you didn't say so. There are also crab apples - small trees with flowers in spring (white, pink or red) and fruit in late summer also pretty colours. You can even make jelly from it.

I have grown Lavatera "Silver Cup" in the cutting bed and in a couple of pots. It's supposed to be 60 - 70cms tall, most are, but one has gone mad, 147cms, 4'10"!

When I read your question I was just about to say Choisya Ternata, or Sundance or Aztec Pearl, but then scrolled down and saw Ladybird has beaten me to it.

So not the end of the world for it! And next year it will be bigger and stronger if you treat it right.

Few questions

Posted: 26/07/2016 at 18:45

1. Yes, always sensible to replace something that isn't working for something you like.


2. Petunias do like warmth. But when the baskets were failing had you fed and watered them? Did the new petunias get new compost?


3. Looks like a Philadelphus, does it smell nice? Probably needs pruning, a feed and some water, unless, of course, you are having lots of rain. Petunias don't like lots of rain.

If you clap your hands loudly they run away.

Can you suggest a plant?

Rudbeckias, Dahlias.
