Result David! They're lovely plants and very versatile. Escallonia's a much underrated shrub as well. I have a white one for against a sunny fence. Enjoy your nice bargain

I'd agree with philippa. If you can put them somewhere sheltered ( house wall or similar) in case there's a severe spell of cold weather, they should be fine.

Only because I bought some last year! Even the girls at the nursery were getting confused because they know them as Pernettya as well  

The prostrate one is very pretty too - procumbens. In fact I posted a pic on the camera thread today. I bought three for the little narrow shady border I made along my back fence. Useful little plants.

fidget- the wand would be going sideways if I had the choice.....Last year they discussed the aid being sent to India and Pakistan and an Asian man phoned in and said his home country was laughing at us for sending so much money there. He was quite angry about it, saying Pakistan was a very wealthy country. In other words - we're being taken for mugs here. The problem with so many of these countries is that it doesn't reach the people it should, it just gets transferred straight into the pockets of the people running them. 

Anyway, on a lighter note... 

I was outside - gardening -  till....half five! Lots of tidying and cleaning the area where I feed the birds, putting compost into the raised beds, and planting a few litte bits and pieces etc. It was still light too. Makes me feel almost human 

Enjoy your new 'truck' Clari! If the  weather gets really bad, you'll be glad to have it.

...and breathe David  

Fracking hopeless sometimes aren't they? Glad you're all cosy again.

Perhaps a small well worded e mail to management wouldn't go amiss....
