    I have a garden in Engadine Sydney that is 7m long x 1.5m wide against my back fence, I’m looking for a screening plant that will grow in part shade as the garden is under other tree canopies. I looking for 3-4m high x 1.5m wide plant that can be pruned from the front if necessary and fast growing to screen out neibhours. Can you suggest some plants.
    Thank You

      Hi Ross, something like a Magnolia little gem or magnolia teddy bear would do the job. Also a Syzygium select would work well. You can email sales info@downesnursery.com.au for more information
