Can we talk about viburnums?

Posted: 23/05/2013 at 09:12

I'm looking for a fragrant Spring flowering viburnum.  Do you have a favourite?

Should I go for evergreen or deciduous - or even semi evergreen, whatever that may mean! 

Quick growing rhododendron or azalea - is there such a thing?

Thanks for all the feedback everyone!  I'm off to Morrisons to see what they have. I'd never thought of going there for plants, although my neighbour always gets his geraniums from them and they seem to be very healthy and floriferous!

I want to plant a couple of rhodis or azaleas in my garden, but as they are expensive, I think they will only be around 2' high when I buy them.  Do I plant them at the back of the border and expect them to double their size in 5 years, or are all varieties slow growing and should be put in the middle of the border?

What a beautiful hosta, Gail.  Do you know its name?

Busy-Lizzie, when i was looking through the Big Map thread I was amazed to see your photo of the Chateau de Hautefort, because we have just booked a gite only 2k from there! The owner is a keen gardener so i am looking forward to seeing what grows well down there!
