Which evergreen shrubs to plant in front of large conifer hedge?

Posted: 01/08/2013 at 18:52

Sarah, sarcoccoca ...sweet box....will grow very well there.  Scent in late winter from an evergreen compact shrub is wonderful.  Choisyas too....both green and yellow forms...provide scent in spring for quite a long time.  these are lovely shiny leaved compact shrubs with bay scented foliage.

They are short lived plants......they often survive winters but best regarded as something to flower profusely in summer with cuttings to,provide new plants next year.

Yes nut, I think a bit of moisture is required.  They look classy and subtle ESP over low mounds or sprawling geraniums

Get rid of it.  Try digging it out......there will be long runners so clear ground thoroughly.  If not too much of it digging should work

Failing that.....if bamboo is lodged under paving or similar then spraying with high strength glyphosate and doing so with persistence is an alternative
