Leylandii Advice Please



  • How about getting a honeysuckle growing up there? They like part shade.

    Just be aware that the ground could be very dry there, unless it faces the prevailing wind and rain, so you'll need to make sure anything you plant gets well tended until established.
    Leylandii can draw a lot of moisture from the surrounding areas. Make sure your planting spots are well prepped, with plenty of manure to help retain moisture, and a good thick mulch after copious watering  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
  • Thank you Dappledshade and Fairygirl.

    I grew a clematis montana right to the top of a large fir tree in my garden.
