Dig It! Hot weather casualties

A hot summer can mean some plant casualties, and in Hester Macdonald's garden, it was a pair of box wood cones that didn't survive. What to plant instead? Plantarium is a large show for new plants, in Boskoop, Holland, and Hester found plenty of inspiration there. Olivier Pantin, of Sapho plants, presented two perfect replacements for the box trees, Eleagnus x ebbingei "Maryline" and Prunus azorica "Tico", both fully winter hardy and will be available in garden centres from 2016
