I've seen Soft Caress in the local GC recently - it looks a pretty thing, but without the architectural qualities of M. japonica as far as I can tell.
You know me Verdun, I love hollies, and there's lots of lovely varieties available http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-norfolk-25168895
Fidget - our sympathy to you and OH.
In my experience Fatsia Japonica, a very handsome plant, isn't happy in cool windy spots - I've known leaves ripped and even blown off in gusty conditions.
We'll look forward to it
There's obviously more than one way to skin a cat
I don't know about the others, but I find Mahonia japonica more resilient in poor conditions than Mahonia x media - but if you're planning to take some cuttings anyway you've got nothing to lose - I'd try it
Sage takes happily from cuttings so easy to replace.
Sadly not mine Pam - off the web, but I thought they'd cheer us up. I do love them and I'm hoping to plant some hazel at the back of this garden very soon
You must be near my Mum in law too - between the Deepings and Bourne
