Hi All

This is my first time posting so apologies if I'm long winded!
I would like some advice on planting up a raised border...[FONT="Calibri"]Ihave a part shady (sun from about 1pm) raised border. Iam at a loss as to what plants are best giving evergreen colour. Ialready have a tree fern in one corner of it which thrives and anevergreen climber (Clematis Armandii) and another purple plant with silverishleaves (canít remember the name) which bees love. I need about 5 shrubsthat will complement each other, and ideally I would like evergreens withblue/white flowers if possible. Also ones that wonít take over the bed(so not too big). If you could recommend a few it would be greatly appreciatedplus any advice you could offer. As you can see the bed is in a bit of amess (that was last summer) so I have now cleared it leaving only the purpleshrub and clematis.

Your help would be much appreciated.[/FONT]
