I have 'Seagull' and mine does have small white single blooms. Does that help?

Identification please

Pittosporum are lovely shrubs and always look so 'fresh'. But not terribly hardy with me in Scotland. Lost a large variegated one 2 years ago in a sheltered position.

Would a long piece of hose on a brush handle do the trick?

HELP...what to do with Leylandii hedge

Posted: 27/06/2015 at 20:14

You could look on this as a long term project and replace one boundary every 5 years. That would give each new hedge time to grow. But you will always have that 'loss' of about 1m for the width of the hedge and the problem of dry soil at the border.

I have leylandii hedge on 2 sides of my garden about 6-7 ft tall. It gets cut once a year in Oct/Nov time and still stays neat all year.

We all garden in different ways - does not mean that we do not appreciate others' styles. A bit like cooks really - we all know the same ingredients but use them in different recipes to suit our tastes.

It's not my type of gardening but I certainly admired Mr whatshisname's garden and lawn and appreciated the time he must spend in it. The gravel garden was fab!

Any Advice please, weed or plant

Topsoil by virtue of its name, free or not, should be weedfree! and plant free! The fact that it has marestail in it would make me think to get rid of all of the 'topsoil'. It certainly isn't topsoil as we know it.


recycling plant pots?

I put them in my plastics recycling bin.
