Good evergreen hedge plant?

Posted: 19/06/2014 at 06:35

I love Mock Orange (Philadelphus) too, love the perfume, but the Original Poster wants an evergreen hedge. 

HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning all   We have sunshine here in Norfolk!!!  but clouds over to the west 

I shall be leaving here at lunchtime and heading to SIL's to stay with her and niece so I'm local to Nut and will travel to Barnsdale with her. I will have my phone with me to check in, but it's a real faff to post with it, so I probably won't be around much until Saturday PM.  OH will be here on hedgehog feeding, slug murdering and plant watering duty.

I'm usually quite phlegmatic about slugs, but my Pak Choi is taking a long while to recover 

Punkdoc - have a brilliant time at Glasto - we shall be thinking of you - looks like the weather's going to be fine for you.

Anybody coming over this way to Latitude?

HELLO FORKERS!

Definitely shut, and the one in the garage and the freezer - all tight - well, as soon as I got the tonic out of the fridge and the ice out of the freezer they were tight shut

Yes, found it - the Vapourer Moth

Strangely my caterpillar had two dark yellow spots and two bright yellow spots, but definitely a Vapourer all the same.
