Thank you for all your recent advice on planting shrubs, got started Saturday, made good progress, kind of know now what I need to do. I propagated my first plant, a geranium, then I went a bit mad & took a piece off each plant in sight. Don’t know if I was actually taking the right part but I am sure I will find out soon.

Hi, I have a number of shrubs to plant against a wall, most grow to 2 or 3 meters.
Could anyone advise me how far out from the wall I would come to dig plant them
I have only recently started gardening and seem to be making every mistake going.
Any advice would be appreciated :-))

I spent the day Saturday in Johnstown garden centre, first time there, its fantastic.
I am embarrassed to say I spent 5 hours there, but that includes time in the restaurant.
I was looking for plants to place at the side of my house for privacy but got everything but them!!!
The few I got were the ones that were suggested to me here, like escallonia, red robin, choisya & aucuba du japon.
I also got a magnolia fairy cream, it is evergreen & highly fragrant so looking forward to seeing that grow.
Everything is quiet expensive in JOhnstown, I was wondering if I was crazy to spend €45 on one thing!!
I didnt get a chance to plant everything, they are all still sitting outside waiting for me.
I am after realising I have planted all my existing shrubs too close together, like ones that grow to 2meters are only a foot apart, I have alot to learn!!!

3 months ago we built this shrubbery and everything in it was planted tidy. Now 2 planTS in it are serious after taken over and covering the flowers beside it. should I just cut back the overgrown ones even though they are in full flower? How so i go about fixing this mess.

I have a long boundary wall at the side of my house. If anyone is walking past they have a full view of my garden & house. I need to cover this in & make it private. Would anyone have any suggestions. Building up the wall is not an option as the wall isn't actually owned by me. I already have planted a heap of grisilini hedging in another area of my garden so I have enough of that. What I am looking for ideally is some beautiuful unusual shrubs that will grow high. I love anything that is fragrant & flowers. Would anyone know if this is achievable for what I want? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
