I love the new red growth, my little 'chunky' is doing well at the moment ...

That's good to know, Amy.
A couple of days ago I attempted to prune/shape one into a lollipop shape. Hmm, not sure if I've done the right thing though . . .

Lovely!!! Seeing lots of this around, Shirley. Everywhere I travel, it seems to be a very popular shrub/hegde.

It’s a good one isn’t it … we inherited one in our front garden .. it grows quickly, is evergreen and good for privacy 🙂.

Kate, I'm not surprised as it doesn't need a lot of care!

Sheila, a good all rounder really . . . :o)

Being contrary, I know I'm in a minority of one where this shrub is concerned... ;-)

That's fine, Ange, wouldn't it be boring if we all liked the same things?!!

Sandra, I look forward to hearing from you. :o)

I’m not mad about it either, Ange, but having inherited it as a front hedge I’m happy to live with it 🙂.

Shirley I was told not to trim until the red colour had faded off ... not sure but I always keep to that rule ..

Thanks Amy . . . bit too late for the one I pruned then . . . :o))
