stealing from the neighbours?


Not as bad as you think. the next door garden has some lovely variegated shrubs that tumble over the boundary.

they add to my view and complement the dark green of the yew.
what do you think?

I have Weigela florida 'Variegata' in my garden and its beautiful, your lucky to be getting yours for free though!! Its rare to actually get plants hanging over from next door that you actually want!

My next door neighbour tends to let their garden go a bit wild so I have "borrowed" some of their shrubs such as honey suckle and wisteria to cloth my own fence. Unfortunetly sometimes they decide to have a blitz and chop everything down! The neighbour on the other side doesnt like borrowing my shrub rose Wild Edric and we often find branches have been propped up with little sticks if it ventures more than a few cm over their drive.
