Thanks Alan, I didn't know that about the moths is it scented too? Its a gorgeous looking shrub but not sure if it will be hardy enough in an unsheltered position. :(

Hi Verdun, I don't know what happened there but I have only just seen your reply.
I must say that really sounds like it would fit the spec I'm after.
I think that would look really good nor would be one I would have thought of.
Thank you x x

Hello all you lovely gardeners!

I was wondering if anyone could think of or recommend a small structural shrub/hedge/tree (no bigger than 2-3 metres in height and 2 metres in spread).
Preferably evergreen or with all year round interest and needs to be of a compacted habit. It is to go in full sun with a slightly exposed position in coastal conditions.

I have an spot to fill and am very excited at the possibilities 

Thank you x x

Hello, I think that they probably are tomatoes and look similar to the heirloom variety Outdoor Girl.  x

Thanks Ladybird4, I thought Nigella too. Really pleased to hear that is it, as my garden is covered in them. :)
