You should take an overview first. Make a list of what you want to achieve with the garden and take stock of what is already there. Then you have a better idea of where you want to go, and can set about getting there.

There is a lot of information about Garden design in the know-how section and on growing flowers at

In general, summer hardy annuals are not sown until March or April and half-hardy bedding plants are put outdoors in late May.
