HELLO FORKERS!

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

HELLO FORKERS!

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?)

I have mine cut in October when most of the garden plants are over.  In September the chaps tend to damage other garden plants by accident.

Plant ID please!

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

Before you re-net them check for eggs, they are bright yellow and on the underside of leaves.

Aralia spinosa - devil's walking stick

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.  

Fencing Height Restrictions?

If the fence is within 3 metres of the highway you can only put up 1 metre high fence without planning permission.  I'm currently trying to get the necessary permission.

Plants to ID please

A is a weed, Veitch.  B is a Spirea, even the RHS couldn't tell me which one as I have this in my garden.
