They should be big enough to go straight into the ground.

Midazolam is what he needed. I had to fight to get it for dad. It calmed him down, stopped him getting agitated and trying to pull out drips, and stopped mum getting so distressed. I hope you have both had a good night , Lynn.

Me and mum have tickets for a tour around Highgrove gardens in June. Unfortunately, no phones, cameras or binoculars allowed, so no pictures. Passport or other photo I.d. required. I don't suppose ....No don't even think about it, might end up in the tower.

Hilliers book describes x burkwoodii as dark shiny leaves, Brown grey felted beneath, fragrant white flower clusters, pink in bud. Flowers January to May.

Roger Philips and Martin rix describe it as  deciduous shrub to 2.5 m, leaves I hate to Lancelot, flowers scented, 12mm across, .

Other possibility is Viburnum x carlcephalum

.hee hee autocorrect changes that to cataclysmic.
