I have just planted a double row hawthorn hedge row and would like something to grow either in between or behind "evergreen" to avoid the bareness over the winter period.
Any ideas please



I'd suggest Vinca - but it might take over - so buyer beware! lol. It does have attractive flowers, though, and there are variegated ones which you might like. Don't go for Vinca difformis though - it's a real thug!

Quite a few of the hardy geraniums are virtually evergreen ; the macrorrhizum group spread easily and are pretty tough and dont mind poorish areas such as under or between hedges.
