Simply beautiful. Does anyone know which tree is on the left of the pic with the bird food hanging from it? Sooo elegant........

Hmmm...not sure minihoney, but it does look like a Fatsia japonica to me.

Thanks Karen - yes it does, but different? Maybe it's in the pruning? I will investigate further.....

I would say it has been really well pruned, but it might be something different altogether!

Hello Minihoney and Karensusan,
Yes it is a Fatsia Japonica which I have been shaping for the past 10 years. It is around 5 metres high and makes a beautiful canopy. I really love them particularly the Fatsia Aurea, they are very easy to grow and pretty hardy.

You've made a great job of the pruning Mossy. Tell me, as I have a small one in my shade garden....how tall did you let it grow before you started shaping it?

Hello Karensusan,
When I bought it about 11 years ago, it was around 60cms high and there were about 6 shoots at the bottom. I left 4 shoots proportionately spaced. Over the years I cut everything that was growing on the trunks until they reached the hight it now is. Now it is just the matter to remove the new shoots that are misplaced.
