We grow a range of interesting shrubby plants including many from the Caprifoliaceae. A lot of the shrubs we grow will work very well when grown mixed into the herbaceous perennials and grasses that we grow in a naturalistic style and some can be pruned hard in spring to give fresh, whippy growth each year to keep their size down. Feel free to ask for pruning advice on any of them as most have several options.
Very pretty cream margined selection of Box. Grow it as a free standing shrub and don't clip it for the best effect - this also seems to reduce problems increasingly seen with box. 1.2m in 10 years if you're lucky.
A lovely shrubby honeysuckle with warm orange-yellow flowers from glowing reddish calyces in spring and early summer followed by shiny black berries. Deciduous, ordinary soil in sun or shade. 3m in 10 years or can be pruned.
Upright growing New Zealand evergreen shrub with golden orange stems and olive leaves. Masses of tiny white daisy flowers in summer. Can be pruned to size, otherwise 2m+. Hardy in sunny drained position.
