    He's probably sitting in his rocking chair, smoking his pipe, with a glass of something in front of that fire, that the cat likes. :D

    Tell you what - that slipper gives a whole new perspective on things!! It's not a cotoneaster, is it???? Why didn't you put your foot in it before!! It's so different when you see the size of the leaves!

    Pete, I have a leaf now that Paladin sent me - would you like to see it too? If so, I'll post it - It doesn't seem like cotoneaster either, not leathery enough!! I dunno! But I'm keeping on looking! :D

    I'm still convinced its piptanthus, but you can post the pic of the leaf if you want, I'm not just going by the leaves, the stem looks the same as well. As I said Paladins plant is in a bad way, its been dug up for starters, but it looks like its been starved where it was growing.
    Although they are evergreen they tend to lose some leaves in the winter, and only the smaller ones are left. [​IMG]

    They like it well drained, so maybe best under cover, but heat shouldn't be required. No feed. [​IMG]
