Shrubs in Pots
I would be grateful for information on the best shrubs to grow in containers on either side of my front door. I live in Cornwall in an old granite barn.

Almost any shrub will grow in a container, but to make things easier for yourself, look for small or slow growing varieties, especially ones with the word "dwarf" in the name. You may also want to look for shrubs that are hardy to one zone lower than your own, as plants in containers are exposed to more cold than those in the ground.
