Hampshire, United Kingdom
I have a boundary fence where my neighbours have planted Leylandii. They are very considerate and keep it clipped, but I'm finding it hard to grow anything on my side of the fence as it is so very dry. It gets no sun and the ground is well dug clay. I have had some success with a non spreading bamboo further along the fence, but that does get a little more light. Can anyone recommend anything that can withstand this thug, is preferably evergreen and will grow to about 5 to 6 feet. I've just taken out an Aucuba Japonica ''Variegata'', which would not thrive. Any other suggestions please.
