Sorry folks.  Just domt like snakes.  Luckily I have a walled garden.  Adders, when they hiss at me, are disturbing.

Acid soil. Moist.  Dwarf rhododendrons for something different.  Expensive though

I would go for euonymous Emerald n Gold.  I grow them as rounded specimens and as part of a mixed hedge.  Beautiful bright creamy yellow in spring and early summer and turning yellow and green as summer progresses.  Pink tinges in winter.  Easy to shape and control.  I love them.

Berberis atro pur nana is a deciduous purple,,prickly hedge that looks spectacular in the growing season.  Pittosporum Tom Thumb is evergreen and purple and makes a good low hedge too

Another clue to our identity folks.

Acronyms as to how we view life, the garden and people

Mine may well be IIDJI.  Clue.  Impatience.  Impulsiveness.  Forcing the issue.

Prize for correct answer.  It's a hard one.
