can anyone advise which plant the attached pic is?
Would like to see a close up of the leaves.
Pittosporum would be first thoughts.

My first thought was a Pittosporum but it's difficult to get an idea of size from this picture.
It was about 5-6ft? thank you both I will look up pittosporum ?

Pittosporum 'Marjorie Channon' ??
Do you ever see berries? Another alternative, Rhamnus Alaternus Variegata.
A lot of Pittosporums can get tall if allowed to ; I had P.tenuifolium which peaked @ 30' !
The variegated Buckthorn (Rhamnus) is a stunning shrub .
Paul B3, I agree they get very tall. Where I live there are loads that are so huge it's almost unbelievable since I have killed two in the past. But, I have to be honest, the Italian Buckthorn is far more stunning in that, if it's not heavily pruned, the stems are what make it stand out.
The Rhamnus alaternus 'variegata' ? It's almost a crime to prune them That striking foliage combined with red berries is amazing .
A pity more aren't planted .
