Elephant Hawk Moth

Yes BB, all these moths have their habitat. But I wouldn't see much of them if I didn't set a moth trap every month through the summer.

Fairy, book says 'more thinly distributed in Scotland but extending its range' so you may see one soon

I grew Metasequoia glyptostroboides from seed and it looked very much like that at an early stage.

But don't take that as a definite, It's a while ago now

Hi Posy, yes they need sowing so that they get a winter chill. You can sow them as soon as they're completely ripe. If you have a fancy cultivar it probably won't seed true, 

Gritty compost, more grit on top, a cold frame is good, no propagator or other forms of heat. It's the cold that will break dormancy

What is the name of this shrub?

It's not like my privet either in leaf or bark but I don't know what mine is.
