Lily-of-the-valley where do you grow yours?

No, definitely not Susan.

Not enough, Can't get them to thrive.

But, like Philippa, the Solomons seal goes well.

My mother had a huge patch in shade, her soil was gravelly and like concrete in summer. With hindsight (I wasn't a gardener then) they may not have been brilliant but it was a big patch and they flowered

Yes the roots will get biggish. 

Tunnels etc are fun for kids but a playhouse would be a fair weather only play space, dripping in the rain. Also bare in the winter.

It may need acid soil, have you got that. I haven't checked now but I think that's why I don't grow it.

I don't know acid soil plants but I don't think it's an escallonia. Are the bright pink bits flowers? A close up of one of those might help, at least to get the family likenesses established

I've got a large laurel ready to be put through the shredder. It's wet. Will it be frozen tomorrow, that would make  cold fingered shredding
