Evergreens Plant. Commonly thought of as a privacy fence or tree line, evergreens also make excellent plants for container gardening. Remove the root ball from the container or burlap and trim any circling roots.
Interesting evergreens are readily available at garden centers—so be daring and plant one into an existing bed or border! Compact evergreen boxwood shrubs are the classic hedging plants for living green screens. Do not shake off soil or cut the roots.
