    I don't know but I really like that mix of (I think) hydrangeas next to the pathimage

    Is it a Cornus? White 4 petal flowers that turn pink?

    I think it's a philadelphus

    I thought philadelphus at first, but it looks like the flowers have dark centres, so now i think cornus, love that plant image

    Philadelphus is strongly scented.

    Glad to see you have your sense of humour back Mike imageimage Did you see the promised wedding pics on the Forkers thread? 

    Thanks everyone. 

    Victoria, yes they are Hydrangeas, not mine unfortunately as I love Hydrangeas but I still have the pleasure of looking at them when I go out every day image

    Pruning info......"As soon as the shrub had finished flowering, cut out all of the stems which have just flowered. Prune them back to around a third of their length. They will soon start to produce new stems which will provide the flowering stems for next year. Do not just prune little bits off the end. Prune right back into the bush."

    Really??? I don't think it's meant to grow as big as it is, although they say they can grow to 6m.......and it's not a tree it's a shrub, everyday's a school day LOL!
