The Huddersfield Gardener

People often require a garden that is beautiful throughout the year yet is easy to maintain, so I will talk about a low maintenance plant that could use to enrich an existing bed or plant in a cleared bed.
Skimmia are ideal plants for low maintenance gardens because they are drought resistant so they allow you to go on holiday throughout the summer without having to water the garden. In addition they do not require pruning, which can be a time consuming endeavour.
Skimmia japonica maintain their green appearance throughout the year because they are evergreen plants so they help to avoid gardens looking bleak throughout the year.
