Don't plant those laurels and aucuba, (I'd rather look at a warehouse tbh), get something interesting and attractive planted within your garden and look at that instead of the warehouse.

Janie's suggestion sounds good to me

If you let yourself dwell on the bits you don't like it will spoil your enjoyment of the garden

The aucuba does look droopy compared to mine and looks too yellow to me. Do you know how long it's been there?

I have an area where things are yellow. A mystery to me until OH pointed out that all the dumped brick rubble came with an attachment of lime mortar. What's your rubble?

Can you load something to a photo storage site and post a link, lots of people do that

Vipers Bugloss

I find a lot of that family don't like the pricking out and potting on thing, or growing in pots at all.  Proper VB (biennial native) copes better with being dug up and planted somewhere else than with life in pots, though it prefers to grow where it seeds.

I must have grown my original plants in pots but never since.

Help to identify some plants please

re the tree, the rootstock will overcome the grafted bit in time.

Vipers Bugloss

Is this the viper's bugloss that grows wild or the little annual? They both seem to be called Echium vulgare and I've never understood how that can be.

Seeds go down between slabs and germinate there B-L. They love it but trees don't do well for long

that one at the front does look like laburnum Hostafan, and when you look at the base it's squeezed flat, I wouldn't expect that to do welli n the long term.

Currently in Corfu - What is this?

I didn't know that myth Philippa. There was a lovely mature specimen in Essex where i used to work.

Mine is only about 4 years from seed so a little way to go yet
