    Perfect for creating parterres and low hedges, this compact, bushy evergreen can be clipped into a variety of shapes, so it's also ideal for creating topiary. It's easy to grow in a wide range of settings and it has an excellent resistance to diseases, so it makes an ideal alternative to Buxus.

  • Garden care: Plants grown as free-standing specimens require minimal pruning - remove diseased or misplaced branches in spring. Trim plants grown as formal hedges in late summer. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plant.
