Are Hebe Green Globe/Hebe Emerald Green readily available from local garden centres? At what time of year are they usually available please? I would really like to buy local rather than order online.

    sorry ignore 'readily available'. I meant 'usually'!

    @sharanshrubsNow is as good a time as any. The only thing I would say is there are so many perhaps a call to Nursery or GC first would save on petrol.Also it's not wise to plant out anything in a drought.

    Aldi, even better! I would add check the plants are in good health both supermarkets and GC's are struggling to keep things watered.

    Silly question, but how do you pronounce hebe? Is it one syllable (heeb) or two (hee-bee)?

    I've bought them from B&Q for about  £6 if I remember right.

    I usually hear Hebe pronounced hee bee.

    I bought 2 hebe red edge from my local garden centre, planted them 2m apart and kept them watered, 1 took fine the other just started to die off, not a clue why it did that, got a hebe caledonia from B&M to replace it with and it's taken off and there's flowers on it already.

    They are a great little evergreen shrub, I’m very pleased with mine and they seem to be coping with heat and drought very well:
