Important Factors For Choosing Shrubs

Before choosing a shrub you should do your homework. Analyse and decide what you want for the spot where you are going to plant the shrub.

Ask yourself some questions:

  • How much room is there and how big can the bush grow?
  • How high do you want the bush to grow? Will the shrub block your view if it grows too high? Or will it shade some areas or the house too much? In a small shrub border a dwarf shrub might be more suitable.
  • Do you want an evergreen bush or a deciduous one? If you are looking for privacy or shelter from wind an evergreen plant might be the better choice.
  • How important is the ornamental value of the shrub for this location? Do you want flowers, colored foliage or winter color?
  • Is the spot sunny or shaded? What is the soil like? Is the drainage good or is the ground moist?
  • In seaside and windy gardens you have to ask yourself whether there is shelter from wind. Exposed places will only be tolerated by good seaside shrubs.
