Search for hardy plants/shrubs for a front garden
Tyne And Wear, United Kingdom
We need hardy plants/shrubs for a front garden, so
would anyone be able to recommend anything suitable? Area is quite big (nearly 9 meters long & split in to 2 sections and width of the flower bed is rougly 90cm/3ft). Shrubs/plants would need to survive in a direct and hot sun (that is when the sun is out which hasn't happened this summer so far :) !) and in the winter in rain and wind. We live in the North East and are very close to the sea so weather can be temperamental and often very windy. Soil is ok although hasn't been changed or fertilised since we moved to this new build house nearly 6 years ago. We just pulled out existing bushes planted by the building company and now would like to get something sorted quite soon. We would like evergreen with some colour or flowers. Would Hebe Autum Glory type of shrub be suitable or is there anything else anyone you could recommend? Combinations of different types of plants we could use?
Thank you so much!
