Any suggestions please for small evergreen shrubs to plant with French lavender in the borders beneath windows on either side of door at front of house . There are standard bay trees flanking doorway and a classic symmetrical scheme would probably work best. A box hedge has just been planted around perimeter of lawn at kerbside.



Personally think Rosemary would compliment this esp as you have quite a formal design all of which will require clipping to keep in shape.

Rosemary responds well to this too after flowering of course and fragrance under windows is always lovely.

a friend has used Euonymus 'emerald gaiery' which is the green and white one it is easily trimmed and controlled but provides a structure to the bed which is there at all times of the year, fading into the background in summer but still there bright and fresh when everything else is dormant
