  1. Hi Wouter

    Thanks for visiting Plantbook.

    It will be interesting to see what your hedge does over time. Please send me a picture if you can.

    Flourish!

  2. Baie dankie vir die info. Ek het 5 eksemplare van hierdie boom gebruik (in Durbanville) om `n heining te vorm by `n kliënt omdat ek nie Ilex mitis kon vind nie. Ek`s nuuskierig om te sien hoe dit gaan reageer om geknip te word maar al die tekens is daar dat dit nes Ilex mitis kompak sal groei om privaatheid te bied teen die bure.
