Shrubs

Shrubs give essential form and structure to a garden. They are also great for providing shelter and nesting sites for birds. For this reason they should not be pruned or disturbed during the nesting season, which is generally reckoned to be between March 1st and July 31st in the UK, but birds may well nest outside these dates so do check first!

For more information on growing these see growing hardy shrubs.

Our Shrubs are supplied in 1.5 to 3 litre pots.
