Pittosporum makes a nice hedge and fairly quickly. Yew ........planted 60 cm apart.....is not as slow as many think and is thick and attractive, esp the yellow varieties.
I too have a mixed "hedge" to one side of my veg patch......kept to 4 or 5'. Includes lonicera nitIda baggesons gold, prunus cistena Crimson dwarf, euonymus emerald and gold, potentilla, Rosemary and golden privet. Sarcoccoca in there too. Makes an attractive edge all year round.
