In the fruit department, blackberries, blackcurrants and blueberries are all perfect for beginners, whilst Carex grasses come in both whispy and architectural forms and are easy to grow in the border or containers. For something spiny, berberis is an unfussy shrub that will stand up to almost anything, perfect as intruder-proof hedging or in groups in shrubberies and mixed borders. If you have an acidic soil or are looking for something to grow in ericaceous compost, azaleas and rhododendrons are both beautiful and easy to grow. Azaleas are smaller-growing evergreen or deciduous varieties with smaller leaves and an abundance of long-lasting spring flowers. Rhododendrons are larger growing evergreens, producing spectacular large spring flowers above an impressive structure of spirally arranged, large, leathery evergreen leaves. For vertical ascent and flowers, clematis are easy to grow and well known for producing masses of distinctive flowers in a broad palette of colours. They’re available in a variety of shapes and sizes with a mix of evergreen and deciduous types.
