Recomendations for golden 3-0 high yew hedge

Posted: 28/11/2014 at 10:33 are the Taxus baccata cultivars, find me a Coppershine on this list... or maybe it's changed its name...Corley's Coppertip is the only one similar...

..nothing to apologise for and you shouldn't take it so personally...we all make mistakes.... I do not believe there has ever been such a plant as Taxus Coppershine... it doesn't exist seem to be the only one claiming that it does....

...up to you to prove it I least, it's a bit pointless continually recommending a plant that exists only in your garden...

Recomendations for golden 3-0 high yew hedge

Posted: 27/11/2014 at 23:41's easy to get plants mixed up especially from way back when...and with similar foliage...but I've always thought Verdun's much mentioned Taxus Coppershine is in fact Coprosma 'Copper Shine'...   also not available in this country probably due to its hardiness issues, as with all Coprosmas...  - very mild garden plants only...

...I don't believe there is such a plant as Taxus Coppershine...

...for your 3 foot hedge, Lonicera 'baggesons gold' is probably cheaper and similar...

...has someone been making a short cut to the A1...? 

...otherwise,...your borders are quite nice...

What could I choose?

^I agree with that, even though a few years old now, Great Dixter books from Mr Lloyd would still be a  joy to read I think...

..there are some in the £15-25 range that I would like.... Verdun has promised to buy me one for that camera I got him....

...still waitin'

^definitely...and that's what I was getting at earlier.... but not everyone sees this, people think she's down to earth and ordinary, but actually I find her attitude quite superior at times... and she hurries people up when they're talking...

This thread wouldn't have turned into the usual cat argument if someone who should know better was around in the daytime to answer the posts and stirring that he starts during vampire hours   

lol....oh that did make me laugh..

but....I rather like it when threads go off on a tangent.... no arguments really..just discussion...and people having their say..... it's good to express an opinion I feel..

In reality I don't really dislike cats, I just dislike other people thinking it is OK to let their cats live in my garden, whilst not providing anything for them in their own gardens.....I very much agree with this Gemma...and I think it's quite reasonable to state our experiences on an open forum....for or against...  and no matter how often it's been hammered out...

...I have had to change my gardening methods because of the sheer number of cats roaming around here... I think it's pretty disgusting actually... although I feel the same about those not picking up their dog's poo...

...I get very few birds in my garden, except the larger aggressives like Magpie's and Jay's....  don't ask me when I last saw a Robin..

...even my dog can't keep them all away...but they need to be sharp...he's a Greyhound...
