Evergreen hedge screen

I have about the same length at the bottom of my garden which was badly overlooked when we first lived here and I have grown a mixture of yew, holly, pyracantha and laurel.  We are now not overlooked but it took a few years to achieve.  Don't forget that you may have to trim it in the future.

Lily-of-the-valley where do you grow yours?

Mine are in a very shady area, in fact it hardly gets any sun.  A friend gave me a small clump some years ago and they did take a while to get going.  Now they are lovely and are spreading which I don't mind one bit.

Yippee - just noticed that our Forum pictures are back.

They have probably been back for ages and I have just woken up from a deep sleep.

This is cheating as it's not my garden but I took this photo on Tuesday walking in the Forest and it looks so typically November with the low sunshine.

Streptocarpus - Cape Primrose

Yes Philippa, I have already earmarked that leaf and plan to do some propagation in the spring.  Do the flowers just die back and then all you have is leaf for a while?

Why do you want to get rid of them as they look gorgeous.
