@jacaranda whoops yes you are right, the pieris or the mahonia are the only two trees I didn’t cut back in the hedge and despite knowing exactly which is which have muddled them bit like when I call the children by the wrong name 😂😂😂😂 thank you 🙏

You’re welcome, Carole 😘😘 By the way, your pieris is gorgeous 😍 Mine is refusing to flower or, in fact, do anything at all. I’ll have to give it a good talking to and threaten it with the compost heap 🤣 @carolecuttingitfine

😂😂 @jacaranda they just seem to do well here, must be the damp conditions.. they must have webbed roots 😉 they certainly don’t get any attention!

It's been biblical here in Devon today @juliesgarden ... I'm not sure @brighton this one is about 30 feet.. But is shooting at the bottom so I would have thought so
