East Anglian Snowdrop Walk

lovely, thank you Topbird.

I have come home to find large black bags of flowerpots, usually full of spiders and dirt, sitting outside. Origin unknown

People give me plants as well,  large plants that have outgrown their small gardens. Suits me, I get some nice stuff.

Hi Peanuts, I'd cut back a bit if you want it bushy.

Tertley, does Sundance stay yellow in the shade? I've seen it burned in the sun but never seen one in the shade. I haven't got one, never been sure about yellow leafed shrubs though I like Euonymous 'Emerald and Gold'

The first garden visit of the year

Tree identification?

I can see your point, privacy and shelter, once lost, take years to recover

a little nudge for this thread

Virburnam tinus or opulus

I don't think so Meomye unless you're a big chemical user and willing to kill everything else as well.

V. tinus isn't much anyway. a dark green blob most of the year and worse if the beetles turn up.

Yes, the beetle is the downside of tinus.

How about Choisya ternata, does well in a bit of shade, nice shiny leaves, no beetles, often flowers twice a year.

If the border is really large you could go for Viburnum rhytidophyllum. That's pretty big and evergreen, interesting crinkly leaves
