Pat E, thank you for your link, very useful.

Any ideas are welcome Pat.  I always think that it's worth asking the locals for recommendations.  Thanks for your help

Pat, we have no intention to use the main highway if we can avoid it.  OH is currently investigating the best maps to get and it's now beginning to feel real.  I think I'd like to see native plants as it seems stupid to travel all that way to look at roses

Pat E, I'm in the lucky position of planning a two week trip going from Sydney to Adelaide in a motorhome as part of a longer holiday in Australia.  Are there any websites you could recommend that lists gardens that I could visit?

Trimming Hedges (Leylandii?)

Plant ID please!

I think it's a Yellow Flag Iris - British native plant

RHS advice is to prune in early spring before they start to grow again.

What have I grown?

They look like Dahlias to me.  Wait and see what flowers they have.

Fencing Height Restrictions?

There are laws applying to evergreen hedges that came about because people were letting Leylandii grow too tall.  Deciduous hedges can be allowed to grow to any height.
