Where to put arch?

Posted: 26/12/2014 at 09:07

It's hard to get  distance from a pic but I'd build and prop it up in various positions to see where it goes well.

My first try would be, on the first pic, just in front of the shrub on the other side of the grass.

Please can anybody tell me the name of this plant.

Hesperantha coccinea. The 'Major' in the link is a cultivar, yours will be another cultivar

New hedge advise

Posted: 25/12/2014 at 17:57

low maintenance isn't really a hedge thing. It's far easier to trim a hedge fairly regularly than to get it back when it's out of control.

Yes, look it up and check pruning. It's quite straggly, especially after this wet year or two and I don't know how it would respond to hedging. I've only cut off a few broken branches so far.

Cornus mas is another yellow winter flowerer to consider. It's very reliable for me

Hi Fishy, good to hear the snowdrops are awakening.

Sorry about the dog, most people (including me at times  ) don't know when to stop eating so it would be a lot to expect from a dog.

The soil is very well drained and lacking in humous. It's now quite shady which it wasn't in the beginning. It may not be ideal, may be the reason I had to wait so long
