Ideas for this hedge to hide house!

Posted: 31/12/2013 at 12:49

Thanks Blairs, I might give that one a try. I'd always taken it as not hardy but never looked into it properly

Hellebores might be a special case KEF. all those orientalis hybrids can't be the same hybrid can they? I don't know, what do you think? 

I usually have hellebore x however many plants are flowering. But niger or any other species or hybrids are extra.

that mediterranean prediction was totally out WW,  I think we all know that we just get day to day weather in these islands and predictions are a waste of time, only useful for filling newspaper pages

Good idea WW. 

Yes that's one Verdun.  You'll have enough advantage over the rest of us without counting individual blooms  I may be jealous. But not really. You get to know your own climate and how to garden in it. I'd have to learn a whole new strategy if I didn't live in a desert , except for last year when I lived in a swamp for months.

Having seriously lost control  over the last season and a bit (Open for ngs to wilderness in less than two years), my resolution is to bring it back in line.

or at least a bit

What is this glossy leaved evergreen?

The only thing I can suggest is making the photo smaller so it doesn't take so long. But that is just a guess

I wouldn't add laurel. I have quite a bit of that and it's almost as boring as leylandii.

How hardy is loquat? I've never grown that

I only count flowers KEF, I have strict rules for me.

New Year's Day flower count Stacey.

As many different flowers as you can find on NYD. They have to be properly out and not dead. Weeds should be counted, catkins, anything you can find. 

My totals over the years have varied between none (heavy snow cover) and 40 or more. It's taken very seriously chez nut.

Definitely a flower count Dove.
