Kent, United Kingdom
Does anyone know where one can get reasonably large, possibly mature plants for containers? We have recently revamped our front basement area and we now need to plant appropriately in containers to provide a screen from the pavement. The pots would go on the c. 2'2" ledge visible in the photo and the plants would need to be about 6 foot tall from pavement level to provide cover for the living room window, so we are probably talking about trees rather than shrubs. In addition they would need to be everygreen, fairly formal in appearance to go with the Georgian style of the house, and hardy, as we back onto the sea and our terrace is often windy. Most suggestions for container planting specify small if nto dwarf cultivars, but these wouldn be of little use in this position. Any ideas?
