Identify - Bush / Hedge

Posted: Today at 10:00

I can't see the picture very clearly, but it looks like one of the escallonias to me - there are different varieties/colours and they can make very good hedges.

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

Rake up the leaves, take some hardwood cuttings, keep an eye on seedlings in the coldframe, prune the grapevine, mulch around the rhubarb and the front border.  If the weather ever dries a bit I need to dig over the planned extension to the Little Wilderness and spread compost there.  The broken wrist stopped that happening earlier in the autumn.

So nice to have someone on tv who doesn't appear to have had cosmetic surgery or wear loads of make up and clothes dictated by a stylist.  Just being an ordinary person on tv seems to make one extra-ordinary these days.

Don't want to be a kill-joy Mike, but that's really not recommended internet practice safety-wise - posting your real name and your photograph on a public online forum.  That's why most of us use a Nom de plume and an avatar as our Forum ID.

I would have thought that with your Basic Police Training you'd be recommending the opposite - not trying to get people to reveal information about themselves that could make them unsafe!  We don't keep our identities and addresses hidden for fun - it's for safety online.

It's not just children that can be used and abused online - the safety information given here http://www.nidirect.gov.uk/staying-safe-online should be used by everyone.

Getting rid of brambles

I would wait until spring and when the new bramble leaves are growing strongly I'd paint on some Brushwood Killer or similar.  You can mix it with wallpaper paste to stop it dripping onto the azaleas.

Oh, don't know why that's all gone into bold - I've tried editing it but it hasn't worked!

 

By the way, has everyone got an ad re sexual health and under age drinking on this site (not pop ups, just the banner at the top of the page)?  I suppose we know that gardening has a wide demographic, but I thought that we usually kept ourselves pretty well occupied - I suppose there's not so much to do in the winter  ...
