Plants for either side of front door?

Posted: 13/03/2013 at 21:00

Sorry, not totally clear.

They would need to be in tubs (no more than 30cm diameter I think).  Height would be quite nice.  House is a 70s box so it would need to be a bit contemporary.

I like bay trees (the lollipop type),  Would they be any good?

Thank you for the other suggstions...

I'd like to get a couple of plants for either side of my front door.  It faces south east but is quite shady because of various bushes and several large trees.

Can any of you lovely people suggest something?

Many thanks

Brilliant!

Thank you Dove.  Looks like I can prune shortly too which is great timing.

Can anyone help me to identify this plant and tell me how to prune it?

It's starting to get a little bit out of control!

Thanks Bookertoo

I'll trim it a bit at a time and see how I get on.  It had lots of bees all over it a few weeks ago - so many that I was worried that we had a nest!

Thanks everyone

I'll give it a trim.  It doesn't sound like I can do too much damage.

Just need the rain to stop!

I have a Cotoneaster Horizontalis which is currently taking over my front garden.Does anyone know when I can prune it and how? It's in a corner and underneath (creeping in front) of our lounge window.

I'm a gardening novice so a 'gardening for dummies' type reply would be appreciated.Many thanks!
