What is this shrub?
Can someone please tell me what this - shrub/ bush thing is? I have the good fortune to have one in my front garden and one larger one in the back- evergreen, thickety pervasive rather boring and grow like mad and are all caught up around the other shrubs. I was trying to prune back one and discovered a horrid tangle of thick twisted roots under the thicket of branches but did not find sleeping beauty or any dwarves! I do not trust the fellows at my local T.H.Whites - after having some soil delivered I was complimented on my lovely big Rhododendron- which happened to be a desperately in need of a prune Laurel hedge. Obviously, I will need to get some photos posted up- hopefully I can figure out how to do it.
