Hello David - I'm afraid that most of us are UK based - you'll probably do better asking the members of your local gardening club who will know the conditions in your area.

Good luck

Good morning all   G'day Pat - that sounds like a lovely day 

And great to see Pdoc  ((hugs))  we could have some of these for breakfast?

That's better

Hello Benjamin

I've never grown them and know little about them other than that they grow naturally in bogs and wet ground.  It could be that even with regular watering, they still need more moisture in order to flower and fruit well.

Can anyone help identify these shrubs/bushes?

The evergreen shrub at the far end of the picture is a Choisya,, and as Flowers says the nearest one is a hydrangea.  Both are shallow rooted shrubs and will do no damage to buildings.

No need to worry about those.

There's something a bit taller to the right of the caravan - I can't see it clearly enough to identify it.

Fg, I'm spoilt for choice with Poldark and Burn Gorman

Does anyone want to swap a load of the blue coconut Quality Street that I don't like for some Toffee Pennies .... I love those and there are none left in our tin

It's my birthday
