Grow your own security system

If the thin blue line is not enough in the fight against crime, a prickly green one might be just the thing!

Here are some shrubs (as recommended by the Police) which are officially approved defensive plants – prickly or abrasive and therefore off-putting to even the hardiest thief:

Shrub Rose, Common Holly, Blue Spruce, Giant Rhubarb, Juniper, Purple Berberis, Mountain Pine, Oleaster & Firethorn.

All are hardy, readily available in garden centres and will add colourful and environmentally friendly security for your home and property.
