olive trees in courtyard. Evergreen, soft grey tones, hardy and easily shaped. My husband really wants one of these in our garden so he can have an "on-tap" supply of olives and a reminder of my Italian roots.
Structured box balls and fresh greens with wafting grasses and white Agapanthus to lift it. Clean and attractive. Both box and agapanthus are toxic to rabbits so grow in tall pots if used out of Paddys reach
I like the layering and topiary here with white and green, however its a little too contemporary for the space we want. (Hampton Court Flower Show 2012 Show Contemporary Contemplation Garden by garden designer OneAbode Ltd)
