The Q&A Archives: Hardy shrubs

Question: I am looking for a bush, shrub, or tree that will make a good boarder for privacy around our back land. We are on 2 acres. I need something that will grow without much fuss. Please let me know what you would suggest.


Answer: Diane,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Some choice for a care free hedge include: 'Bright N Tight' cherry laurel, Chinese photinia (not the red tip type), and southern wax myrtle.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
