Looks like some sort of laurel??

Does this need pruning?

I'll leave someone else to advise if pruning is necessary - but if it is, don't do it til midsummer - plums are susceptible to silverleaf if pruned at this time of year.

 Now having first alfresco wine this year, surrounded by the perfume of the wisteria.  One very happy Chicky.  PS Chicklet has cheered up too - only 2 more exams to go.  Then we have to start worrying about littlest Chicklet's science GCSE in a couple of weeks .... Best have another sip of that SB ....

Tea for me please Dove - milk, no sugar

Glorious here too (soz Fairy) - FiL came yesterday to watch the footie - seems he had decided to stay the night, but didn't let anyone else in on the secret - so some rather frantic last minute bed making was required ( the spare room was being used to dry a tent).

Planted out most of the cuttings i took last autumn - penstemmon, agastache and phlox, to bulk up the clumps that i already have.  And uprooted another zillion oak saplings......

JUST FOR MIKE
