what hedging? what benefits?

I don't think that Leylandii has any good features that Yew doesn't do better. 


It may be a bit slower to get going,  but it doesn't turn into a fifty foot monster as soon as you turn your back on it, and if you do let it get out of hand you can cut it back as hard as you like and it will soon be covered with fresh green leaves. If you try that with Leylandii you're left with dry brown stumps for ever and ever

Ok to plant jasmine outside?

I agree with Aym. This may well be a less hardy variety - I would only put it outside during ghe months of June to September.

Maybe drill some holes along the sides- a couple of inches up from the bottom - so that it will always retain a couple of inches of water but won't fill up and turn into too much of a swamp. 


I think that's what I'd do.

i was sitting in bed with my mug of coffee just now when a wood pigeon landed on the windowsill and scrutinised me intently for several minutes before flying down into the garden. That's not happened before

Good morning all   Hope everyone has their hatches well battened - especially those of you in the north and west - hang on to your hats! 


The car alarm decided to wake the neighbourhood a couple of times around midnight last night. I had to get up and go and open and close doors and windows - no real idea what it thought the problem was, but it seemed to do the trick thank goodness
