Has anyone used myrtle as a low hedge? Just wondering on your experiences or views.
Am planning a simple knot garden and thought myrtle might be an attractive alternative to box as the scent is so lovely when you brush against it.
We are in Birmingham and the area is quite sheltered and sunny so hoping winter frost won't be a problem.
Myrtle communis tarentina is the variety I was considering but only based on an article which cited this as good for low growing hedges although it didn't say how low - I am thinking of 30-45cm/ 12-18" in old monies
