Easy to tell the difference, lilac smells lovely. Privet smells dreadful

Says you - I love the smell of privet in bloom

Changing colour of Lilac

Lilacs are often grafted onto a rootstock, sometimes of lilac and sometimes privet is used.  However I thought that the lilac used as a rootstock is the common lilac colour, so if suckers had taken over the resulting flowers would be lilac not white.

I suppose the flowers are lilac, not privet .................

HELLO FORKERS!

North, South, East or West Facing

Sorry, I misunderstood - I thought the border was against the patio, not against the fence 

North, South, East or West Facing

As I understand it you have a north facing garden.  I would say that your cottage garden border is also north facing unless it is sloping towards the south.

Don't be embarrassed - sometimes something we've read or heard just throws us out of kilter a bit - in your job I imagine you've  come across that before

I'd do it immediately after flowering to give new growth a chance to develop and harden off before next winter

Sometimes Hedgehog rescue organisations need to rehome hogs - google for your nearest one and offer your garden - they'll come and check your garden out to see if it's suitable
