Sile Ni Bhaoill asked 11 years ago

I have prepared a flower bed just at the front of the house, underneath a window. The flower bed’s position can be quite cold. It does get full sun until about 2 0 clock approx but the wind from that easterly north-easterly direction can be very cold. The bed is 7 feet by 18 feet long. I would be very grateful if you could suggest some plants that would be suitable.

Choose one or two small shrubs, such as box, skimmia or sarcococca. all evegreen, or potentilla, spirea or hypericum, for flowers.

Fill in around these with some perennials, such as bergenia, geranium, iris, iberis, alchemilla, pulmonaria, hellebore and epimedium.
