Nick,

Kids pull leaves off and throw them as they travel to school or when playing out. If you find some discarded leaves dip them in rooting powder... :lol: :lol:

You never know...

Looks superb FF, how well it's done since it was just a hole in your lawn!

Your borders look amazing, I love this pic:

That Cordyline is going to be a very impressive specimen indeed, with all those trunks it's going to look truly tropical.

Wow your front garden has come on loads, looks very very lush. I love a nice attractive front garden.
Thoses Red Robins are coming along at a good pace too, how high are you going to let them get to?

They really do motor, I am going to keep it as a low hedge maybe 3ft. not sure if it will be a neat square cut hedge or a rougher rounded top yet though- dont want to make too much work for myself
