Conifers

Conifers add colour and shape to any garden, and because they are mainly evergreen, will last the whole year! There is an amazing choice of shades, shapes and sizes ranging from tiny dwarfs to magnificent trees. Most are easy to look after, requiring little pruning and watering. They tend to be reasonably disease resistant but may need some attention during really cold spells.
