Hey Fu......it's me again I feel like I'm stalking you
We've got this side gardenbed which is almost 60cm deep ie from wall to fence. ( I will be digging out that c**p & filling it with the right stuff, in case you were wondering )
I'm thinking of planting murrayas there right along the fence line. Now, I've had them before so I know they can get quite bushy. I was wondering, would I be able to plant something like hellebores in front of the murrayas or would they get squeezed out ?
Also, how much should I dig out ? Should I take the existing soil level down to about the height of the wall or more ?

A hedge of Thomasii if you can find it over your way. Wonderful flowers and loves dry shady areas, handles a bit of sun. Beautiful soft green leaves.
These are incredible plants
Murraya for an exotic but a proven performer. Vibernam tinus. Vitex for some colour.
I won't bombard you with ideas

Sorry, I meant to write Thomasia not Thomasii
Not sure if they are available in the East (they should be from native nurseries) but these grow in a wide range of soil types and are native to most states so chances are you can grow one there.
