I have a tiny inner city garden, split into 4 sections. I want something evergreen for one of the sections, shoud I think hedge, or will I lose too much plantintg space? Area is approx 7ft x 5ft, triangular. Whole garden faces directly North / South, so this section is shadiest part. Plant must not have poisonous berries. Also can't afford too much height (3-4ft maximum);garden style is 'cottage' Help!

Maybe some evergreen azaleas. Sarcoccoca with its lovelly winter fragrance. Some ferns? Is there enough room for a formal hedge?

one of the evergreen euonymus another possibility

Thanks, I like the idea of ferns. LOve Azaleas, but a bit to formal for my garden look. Will also investigate Sarcoccoca

Flower lady, check out the VARIETIES of ferns too.......Tall bold, to dainty, to silvery leaves to yellows, rich can have such variety there.


Lavender is a classic cottage hedge
