Help with finding the name for this large shrub

Looks like a  laurel to me. Flowers have just  gone over on mine

Verd it's funny - we moan about the weather so  much up here, but actually it's a form of self defence!  I wouldn't really want to live anywhere else in the world.

Perthshire is one of the nicest parts of Scotland. The raspberries are better than anywhere else in the country too  

Small yellow things growing on mulch?

Sounds like a fungi of some kind Chris but difficult without a pic - for me anyway!

Someone else might be along soon to help. 

Can you help me identify this plant/shrub

Welcome to you Craig. Hope you enjoy finding out about all the plants in your garden.

Nut's right - start a new thread and put a few pix on at a time of anything you're unsure of. Lots of highly knowledgeable, friendly people on here who will help you.

You're right WW. One of the lodges is about twenty feet from a great chasm of the river where the water just surges and foams round huge slabs of rock, and the birch trees and rowans are on the banks. You could never tire of that view from the windows

I bought a small plant last spring Katherine (about 12" in a 4 or 5" pot) - potted it into one of those deep plastic pots you see clems in, and then planted it out last autumn. It was well fed about a month ago and that's the result now. It's around 3 or 4 feet on both directions and covered in buds. 

asparagus or weed?
