Plants that I can put infront of a conifer hedge

Posted: 18/10/2013 at 22:41

We have the neighbours conifer hedge at the bottom of the garden. The border is about 2ft deep and 10ft wide. This year I had a monarda, lupin, dahlia. Heaucra, hellbore in. But they all pulled badly to the light.

any ideas fir something that can cope without pulling so much the hedge is probably 10ft tall.

I have tried to have a look but mostly in the midlands area. Maybe you should start a page between you and your friends. People post 'I would likes' others post free to a good home. Think you just have to be specific that it is no cash etc, just grifters and receivers!

Ranunculus - some people in this area have set up pages where people can give stuff away for free, like freecycle! It's fab, I always keep my eyes open for garden items!!!
