Reviewed 17th April 2018 by Caroline

Evergreen plants are most beneficial in a dull corner of the garden and these two are a classy combination. I did have to check the soil type for the fern - acid /neutral is preferred so it wouldn't have been suitable in my borders, but is fine in the pot and is a lovely, healthy fresh looking specimen. Actually the vinca that arrived was a deep purple rather than blue-mauve, but I'm not really complaining as I like the colour (but it may be worthwhile updating the website with this information).
