That one I am trying to ID, very tough, evergreen dense, the birds love to hide in there in winter. Just don't know yet what it is for sure!

Shrub ID please

Yes, very waxy and twiggy, I will have a sniff tonight but can't say I have ever noticed much smell to it. Thank you.

Crocosmia, no flowers just lushus foliage.

If you feed them, you can get lots of lush foliage at the expense of the flowers, they survive on very little. You can split them in Autumn or Spring, but not too much feeding.

look wot she did to me........

One minute I'll go and have a sniff, 

No, maybe just a very faint smell like privet but nothing much, the bees don't go on it.

They keep a supply of dry mix in the cupboard, we used to sell them as home cooked, but the owner bought a catering sized packet of mix. Well, it was true, they were home cooked!

They can be cooked first then frozen, then revived in the oven but they do have to be cooked first.

That won't work Nut, once you put liquid with the flour that's it, need to bake straight away. You could get to the breadcrumb stage and keep that, dry, then just add the milk and cook straight away tomorow. Afraid it's early start me dear!
