Never seen one with such pure white flowers. That is beautiful. Will put this on my faves, it would be beautiful in my white back garden border!

Well, I did have a look at them in the GC today and although they didn't have this one, there was another pure white one with tons of buds. I might go back for it, but I'm not sure at the moment. I'm trying to focus on getting height in to my space. Everything was so flat when we came...except for a dead hawthorn and a dying Sorbus, both of which have gone. I've planted over 20 new tall shrubs and small trees, but I think I still need more!

This one of mine is approx 5/6 ft tall Karen probably nowhere near the height you are aiming for , its very difficult to judge space when you start off with an almost blank canvas , when we moved here there was nothing except grass and like you we bought masses of shrubs /plants /trees all very tiny and as cheaply as we could buy them at the time, they are now huge and in lots of cases I wish I had spaced them out more , they seem to find their own space somehow !

Yes, and I will prune more this time too. Four seasons garden is a great example of how most things work with being pruned!

Golly they make me feel totally useless when I see their results , never enough hours in the day ;o(

Well, absolutely, but I wouldn't want mine that perfect tbh. But their pruning info on their website is really useful!
