Adding some shrubs to the rockery

Adding some shrubs to the rockery

After years of buying little rockery or alpine plants, I have decided no more. Must've spent lots and most have not survived.
Berberis Thunbergü, Taxus yew and Euonymus Harlequin

I can sympathise, Kate, with money wasted. Best laid plans and all that. I like your choices and will keep my fingers crossed.

Apologies, there are 2 pines, Oh corrected me! There’s are a couple of yews elsewhere.
Thanks ladies for all your feedback! Shirley, my parents have the very dark leaf Berberis and it’s exactly as you say!
Thanks Ange, I should have learnt by now as each year passes.

Kate, Berberis are often recommended as a burglar deterrent hedge ... I can see why!
