@WonkyWomble is still having probems posting pics so I'm posting it for her and hope that you can ID it please 

I'm rubbish at naming shrubs and although this looks familiar I just can't come up with its name.

    Would agree a pittosporum, just like one we bought last year. 🙂

    It's quite spindly.  If she would like it to be densier/bushier, then she can prune it back by a third/half in Spring.  We have a bit of a love affair with them, and they seem completely pest-proof, which is a blessing these days.

    @KeenOnGreen thank you 😊  it's a actually a bundle of individual shoots all with good roots that were growing at the base of a larger one that a customer wanted removing.  I liked the look of them so bought them home but don't have a huge amount of room so wondering at where I can put some 🤔

    @Songbird-1 I cant say no to a plant it's terrible! I end up taking them from one garden and putting them in others! 
    Hope your keeping safe and well! X

    Hi @WonkyWomble, we are fine ( touch wood) thanks. How is your OH doing? Is he feeling better?
    Yes, I " dread" going to a g/c as I see so many lovely plants that I want them all. It's very hard to turn your back but I can't wait to start sowing and planting in a couple of months time. Take care.
