Snowdrop Walk - East Anglia

Posted: 02/02/2014 at 20:41

As far as I can remember, the Winter Walk has good dry paths, the Woodland Walk might be a bit muddy. Walking boots should be more than adequate.

Son is just doing large Yorkshires, to be served with chicken breasts wrapped in bacon. He's a good lad!

Can I prune a juniper bush?

I cut mine back when it starts to spread too far, it's survived so far (about 17 years). If it's got dead or dying branches, you've got nothing to lose by removing them.

Nut, don't worry about my car, it's used to being used to carry all sorts of stuff. It laughs at a bit of soil!

Shrub identification please

Doesn't Pittosporum have wavy-edged leaves? 

Emma, are the pale edges to the leaves frost, or variegation? There is a variegated Photinia called Pink Marble which looks more purply from a distance. I've just brought in a sprig of my Photinia and the leaves look very similar, as does the habit - but I could be barking up the wrong tree!

I would have said Photinia, it's not a viburnum as the leaves are the wrong shape.

Really???!!! Even if they only last a season, that sounds amazing!

I bet they did, I remember from the last lot which was 15 years ago. Well worth the effort though, they come through every year without fail and have increased steadily. Love 'em to bits!

You'd be amazed at how few 500 look - just five small bags. I don't think they'll go very far. Somehow I didn't expect them to come so quickly, I thought they would wait until after flowering.

Yes, in the green, some with flowers on. All I can think of to keep them going for a few days is to put them in deep seed trays and cover with compost.
