This might be Hebe andersonii, or it might be Hebe fransescana variegata - the 2nd one has thick leaves, the first doesn't. If it is the second one, it needs shelter during the winter.

Bamboo you star-Hebe fransescana variegata. Looks exactly like this!!

well done thank you

oh and when you say shelter do you mean like bringing it into a greenhouse?

Well its said to be half hardy, though I've seen it growing and surviving in sheltered spots here in London - up there, though, with your cold easterlies... up to you.

eeek
just the thought of the winter brings me in a cold sweat, will plant in a pot and then bring in my greenhouse later in the year

I know, it's so depressing - the starlings were back at the nutfeeder today (they only come in the winter) and the rugby pitches have been marked out on the field opposite me, with the site screens for cricket being removed and put away. Woe is me...

Do you suffer with the S.A.D Bamboo?

I already have my winter socks out ready hehe

Think I do - I don't even mind the cold so much, its the dark - there's so damned much of it. And winter socks? I've been wearing my fluffy boot slippers for the last fortnight (except for Sunday, which was unexpectedly hot) and I've had the heating on tonight. Chucking it down here, and really windy

we have had a few light showers this evening, nothing major
wish it would rain properly very annoying
glad its not just me feeling the cold in August then.

My friend suffers terribly with S>A.D she gets all low and teary. She always books a hot holiday abroad around xmas time (her parents have split) that way she doesnt have to feel bad about choosing who to spend it with as well as feeling miserable with winter.

I was just about to agree with you about the thought of winter but this has reminded me I must order more silver gloves for my daughters raynard's.

Raynards?

I think Drc means Reynauds - its a syndrome or condition where the sufferer has extremely poor circulation in the hands and sometimes feet, and cold aggravates it. And as for rain, I think you're in for it overnight or possibly tomorrow morning.

Its a condition that is brought on by cold even going to the fridge can trigger it Silver gloves can help[

oh my goodness that sounds awful! poor girl.

You were right Bamboo a little shower last night stayed and is still going this morning
blowing a hooly out there
