Viburnum tinus is an evergreen that forms a dense hedge up to 3-4 metres tall. The leaves are dark glossy green. Viburnum tinus produces masses of white flowers from pink buds for a long period from October until April. Any free-draining soil in sun or shade. Rate of growth: up to 45cm per year. Plant between 60cm and 100cm apart (approximately 2-3 feet apart). Hedges with plants 60cm apart "fill in" to form a dense hedge quicker than those planted 100cm apart.
1 Salvia nemorosa 'Caradonna’ from the mildly aromatic silvery green leaves to the violet flower spikes with purple stems. Bees love the flowers that stay looking sharp long after the petals fall, thanks to papery bracts that hold their colour. Dead-heading – either little and often or in one go – encourages new flowering side-shoots till October. 'Caradonna’ loves sun; use it as a purple ribbon through late season grasses or, at 18in (45cm), it is the perfect centrepiece for a pot.

Adds privacy, reduces suns heat and drafts and looks cool. Add a couple of solar lights to window ledge for evening glow...
