Tough shrub for shady, windy spot

Posted: 10/01/2014 at 19:47

I've got skimmia in a shady, cold and quite exposed spot- it does very well, with lovely flowers and berries.

My new addition sarcococca is also settling in well to the same north side of my small garden- I'm aware it may not have as many flowers and berries aif one in a less shady spot though.

Thanks LG 

I couldn't get any closer because off Keep off Grass signs and rubbish camera phone!

No leaves I could see remaining, no. May have to wait tip Spring or when no one's watching and climb over fence...
