Shrubs are low maintenance plants that form the foundation of most gardens, providing structure, shape and colour while offering a wide range of ornamental features. Smaller shrubs can be well suited to growing in containers on the patio or balcony, while at the other extreme larger varieties act as the backbone of larger gardens at the back of shrubbery and mixed borders. Border shrubs introduce texture and contrast, acting as the permanent framework to help you beautify your garden. They are a highly varied and versatile group, distinguished from trees by their multiple stems and shorter height. Some are evergreen, retaining their leaves all year round, whilst other are deciduous, losing their foliage in the autumn before coming back into leaf again in the spring. It’s normally best to incorporate a mix of both into your garden and choose plants providing a display of flowers, berries, fruit, attractive bark or vibrant foliage at different times of the year.
