I was wondering can you advise me on what hedge to plant. I live on the top of a very windy hill and need good shelter. I would prefer something evergreen but maybe with a flower or a bit of interest. I have a privet lining one side of the house, we had to take it out at the back because we built an extension. I have read that it can be poisonous to dogs and we have a puppy. I’ve had snowberry suggested?
