Dwarf English Boxwood Border ideas

leannejhJuly 9, 2011

What are some good things to plant behind a small boxwood border? There is one Iceberg rose in the middle now which I plan on keeping there, looking for ideas of what to plant around the Iceberg. Thanks.

Leannejh, can you post some photos of this area for us? I would say more roses, maybe some nice David Austin English roses to go with the boxwood border, but if you post up some photos, that would be most helpful.

More 'Icebergs', and Geranium 'Rozanne' (or 'Jolly Bee', which is very similar). White and lavender-blue with a boxwood frame looks really good.

Easy peasy, leannejh. Upload your photos to Photobucket.com. Then, copy the .html code (there's lots of code options, but you'll want to select the .html code, NOT the .jpg code). Once copied, then just start a new message to your thread, and copy in that .html code. Your photo will then appear right in your message! Very cool that our forum allows for .html code I think!

I have a Fliker account, will that work? Where do you find the "code"? Thanks, I did read all this in Help section, but still dont get it.
