Advice please!!

Looking for a little advice on plants for screening ... Currently have a berbris but would like to replace this as it blocks sunlight to my greenhouse ... Thought of bamboo but have heard it's quite intrusive ... Eucalyptus sounds good but open to suggestions

    I would plant a Fargesia bamboo. It does not run. Eucalyptus gets large very quickly. Unless you want a 40ft tree in 10-15 years I suggest bamboo.

    Hi Mandi

    Have you got a pic of the area so we know a little bit of what type of plants to suggest pending what you like image

  • Bit confused.   How would a bamboo block less light than a berberis? as Beaus Mum says, photo would be good.image
