Evergreens have  various uses throughout the seasons in our garden however we especially use them as a backdrop for our flowers.

We use several varieties of ilex (holly) in view of their evergreen foliage of varying  form and colour. We particularly choose varieties with bright gold colours however, some of the female varieties also have the bonus of  autumn berries. Ilex stay tidy with minimum pruning and  can be  trained into a variety shapes. If they become too overgrown they can be heavily pruned and will soon put out new growth from woody stems.
