I would like to plant some bushes to screen off my neighbours.Low maintenance and hardy, about 2M tall and with some colour.
What are the options please ?



I have an escallonia that does that job well in one area of the garden. Coming into flower now with white flowers but you can get red ones too.

Do you have a wall or fence there in the meantime? How about some climbers? I bought some nice Euonymus 'Green Rocket's to hide my fence (have a look on my pics) they're columnar so grow up rather than out and they're everygreen and slightly verigated.
Maybe have a search for everygreen shrubs.....

I don't know how high is your fence but Forsythia and Camelia names come to mind.

Some berberis have dark red leaves and make a dense if prickly hedge. Some have small green leaves and yellow flowers.
