Tired of combating marauding deer? Plant an evergreen garden! No, this is not a boring alternative. Evergreens come in a fabulous range of needle length and colour (blue, green, yellow, solid and striped), a range of growth habit from ground cover to towering statement, a range of shapes from globular to pyramidal, and a range of trained shapes from standard to serpentine to upright weeping. Some adapt happily  to container culture while others need open ground. Explore your options.
