  • Time to trim Viburnum tinus

    Viburnum tinus is a versatile evergreen shrub that can be used for hedging or pruned into topiary shapes - spheres or half-standards.

    Pink buds stay on all winter and cream flowers show in spring. After the flowers have finished they can be pruned to retain the shape.

  • Winter foliage

    Evergreen shrubs Evergreen foliage

    When the sun comes out in late winter, it feels like spring is just around the corner. When the leaves are still off deciduous trees and shrubs the value of evergreen plants is obvious.

    Every shade from silvery to dark green and purple can be used to great effect in the garden for all year interest. Evergreens include hardy palms too - for an instant tropical feel even if the temperatures deny it!

  • New shrub display area
