    From Castletown, take the Groats road. Just outside Castletown, past the old mill, take the first and only public road right (unsigned, heads to Greenland/Lyth). I'm the first house on the right up that road, white cottage on roadside.

    Box is the obvious choice but it is not fully hardy in Caithness. I don't have box anyway, because I only propagate plants from my own garden, that way I know they are Caithness-tolerant! Can I suggest Lonicera nitida Bagessen's Gold? Small gold leafed shrub, responds well to pruning and clipping into shape. Very hardy, keeps its leaves all year round. Very tolerant of hard pruning.

    Hi Manzie. I have 3 or 4 Bagessens at the moment. Don't have holly. Do know a bit about them though. The variety pyramidalis is as good as its name, and there is a dwarf holly, ferox, which clips well. The Bagessens are popular. Do you want me to reserve one for you? Mike.
