no,but it sounds interesting,I am madly trying to grow the common type in pots now as the slugs get them if i grow them in the border.But changing the subject,at the hospital near me they have a beautiful foxglove tree,amazing flowers on it when it blooms.

I have grown in one part to cover a boring fence a evergreen plant that came from  a flower arrangement against it.I think its a kind of variegated privet.any how it grew espaliered across the fence on its own and I just clipped it to keep it neat and in line and it makes a good cover.

I have done a rosemary hedge for my son s small corner garden and its worked well,I took cuttings from his big rosemary bush and just stuck them in the ground,they took and once they statred to take off I clipped them into shape and we cut them back when they need it.As well as a lovely scent when you brush by it (its a handy for all those things you can do with it) its quick to grow,easy to maintain,looks lovely when in flower and free.
