HELLO FORKERS!

Looking pretty good out there this morning 

Well I've just checked outside....cabins a mess and the garden ruined.  Ha ha, gave you all the wrong address...you all went next door.  Evil me 

thats sad news Bill about your son.  Think we all feel for you. On the forum over the past few weeks several members have had good news about their cancers and it has lifted every one of us 

Spike, my,old faithful, is staring at me demanding his walk/run.  Running slightly later today.  Well, had to toast a couple of rolls on top of my porridge.    Well,,not exactly toasting on top of my porridge........   Delicious

Rosemary hedging

Yes it would work

Another option is artemisia absinthium......think that's correct.....commonly known as lads love, boys love. Etc.  it's an aromatic erect semi evergreen shrub.  Lovely old fashioned thing.  Popular down here 

Today I feel so happy....

A new hedge

Euonymous aureus is a nice evergreen hedge.  Also Lonicera nitida Baggesons gold.

Holly is wildlife friendly.

I too would rip out that Leylandii ....they really want to grow as,large as possible so resent any belated treatments.

Philippa, yes.  Euphorbia griffithi, a lovely variety with beautiful red tinged foliage, became a nightmare popping up everywhere.  Artemisia limelight is even worse. 

Invasive plants are now banned here and new ones are always checked for such temdencies

Also a relative nightmare ..........pampas grass.  Thug like,sharp edged and over rated and under controlled generally.

Another relative nightmare .....my cousin.
