Filling a large gap in a Tarmac drive

Started this discussion. Last reply by Ben Marshall Sep 5. 20 Replies

A customer has asked us to remove a built up "corner" on their Tarmac drive so they can fit two cars on. They aren't usually bothered about aesthetics. So when we remove the built up corner and dig…Continue

It is fenced all round with concrete posts and slot in pinelap panels.Access to the rear garden is via a side alley and is not ideal as there are approx 20 steps from the front of the house to the roadside. No chance of getting access from the back either.She is looking for…See More

"It's Hebe parviflora, will take plenty of cutting, unlike some varieties of here which really sulk. I'd cut it back now, give it a good drink and let the Indian summer do the rest. Either that or wait until spring when the flowers will…"

Simon Land replied to Darren Walters's discussion Another plant ID please
"Totally agree with Doug that it is a Hebe of some sorts. As above wait until spring now if you are going to prune it back hard. Hard pruning hebes is some times successful if they have got fresh growth at the base, but often it's easier to…"

"looks like hebe salicifolia. to be honest, quite hard to prune radically as its very slow to regrow and just sort of sulks or dies (in my experience). If you're going to try, do it in spring or it'll die over winter."
