Just followed the link to see what it looks like, definitely on my wish list now.

Problem with Ivy---Hedra helix Goldheart-

People treating your fencing badly with the potential to damage it is counted as a boundary dispute.  I doubt if the landlord would give tuppence if you removed it, but I think you'd have to ask. 

What is this tree?

I tried doing that on line, but they're all so incredibly similar that I decided never to have any of them.  The whacking great ones in America look lovely with the blossom on though.

I am planning the planting for my potential pond, and have always wanted a Gunnera - there is physical space for an average plant (not the one in Dorset with 13 foot leaves), but I don't know how far the roots extend, or how brutish they are bearing in mind that they will be somewhere near to a pond liner.  Anybody know?

Nutcutlet, you really do know your stuff!  I see what you mean about the council planting now. I didn't know the roundabout type bushes were dogwood,  just the red sticks which are supposed to cheer us up in Winter - never occurred to me to wonder what they looked like with their clothes on!

Franco, some of the species are proper trees but they all seem a bit large to be in a raised bed anyway. I wonder what happened to your euphorbia?

You've just done it Tallulah ...

I've never been impressed, even with the sticks, I have enough dead looking things without planting any.

Nut, is there the slightest chance that Franco's tree can be some sort of climbing hydrangea gone wrong?

It doesn't look like any euphorbia I've ever seen, but that means nothing. What are the flowers like?

Posted: 22/06/2013 at 22:35 is a pretty handy site (Guess who has had a similar issue before, in my case the neighbours building a barbecue against it and burning part of it down!)

I think you are probably within your rights to ask for it's removal, but have you checked it isn't on a trellis or anything that would protect your fence anyway?

Don't start me, FG - I'm already ranting on the MOB thread!

Overwintering Geraniums ... (or pelargonium) and begonia

Will they survive inside in pots? (Oh, and fuchsia, too)
