Thank you, I missed the last few posts, sorry not to respond earlier. pittosporum will be good, I'll lookk. out for the varieties mentioned. Will look at yew but not sure, and euonymus probably is too big a leaf for what I'm after.
Hebe rakaiensis looks nice too, very similar.
emerald green globe looks lovely.
Thanks FG, I'd forgotten about hebes. Will look up buxifolia. I like the purple plant to the left, is it ligularia?
I'm looking for suggestions, besides box, which will form nice round shapes, be quite neat and evergreen please. Full sun, soil tendancy towards clay but can be improved.
thanks Lyn, I'll get OH on it! Hadnt thought it through, just expected it to sit on the soil, silly me!
Hi, I have a new wooden obelisk 190cm tall. It's for the middle of a bed so I need ideas how to stop it blowing over and also I dont want it to rot in the ground. I will be using it for clematis which will be cut down late winter / early spring. Thanks.
hmmm, don't think this photo is any better! They are there honest - not just a photo of soil!!!
Probably too small to see in the photo, sorry.
They are tiny, at most 2mm in length, they are white, crawling, and can just about fly. Some have rounder bodies (more immature maybe?), others have more of a wing shape.
They had good roots when I bought them fidgetbones, and have been well watered since I got them. (Rain also runs through the decking and theres a space around them without decking).
