I have an exposed back corner , full sun, wind and would like to plant a shrub possibly in the back corner for height . I have a yellow dogwood in there a red and yellow broom against the neighbours fence , hawthorn at back fence/field which i hate and tend to use an obelisk at the back corner. The field behind is hay/sileage and often has cattle , sheep in . I don't need evergreen as to be honest I have lost ceanothus and red robin at the back or should I stick with obelisk .


  • a flowering red currant does well almost anywhere and can look lovely in spring,plenty of straw and manure at the right time will have blooming well,goes well with forsythia.

    I shall look at both of those thank you , I was looking at a kerria I have moved (currently in a temporary pot) and wondered if that may go in there also.... I may end up with a larger bed and re doing it at this rate .

    Go for the larger bed. There's lots of shrubs out there.
