I need some planting advice. I have a west facing border about 25ft long. Depth varies between 2ft and 5ft. There is a standard garden block wall behind, with wicker screens. I'm looking to plant a range of plants with different height/colour/texture. Where do I start?
I am bringing my mother to Ireland October 7-18th and we will be in Co. Kerry and then Dublin for two days. She loves gardens and we would like to visit a few. Will there be flowers that late in the season? I am thinking of Bantry, Ilnacullen, Muckross and a couple of gardens in Dublin. Do you have any suggestions as to which gardens will show best at that time of year? I have been in Ireland in March and June previously and saw amazing plant beauty. Will fall offer anything comparable?
I got my garden landscaped nearly 4 years ago, but some of the plants dont really suit the garden as they are too big....its a medium size garden, one corner of the garden is shaded and damp...what should i grow there...alot of plants died in the frost so im ready for new plants...shrubs..flowers...i need help to brighten it up.
Could you please recommend flower bulbs that 1.grow in exposed site(wind problen) 2.have good flowering period 3.do not need to be lifted in winter
please suggest two or three specific plants for patio border. raised bed against limestone slate wall. slabs black limestone to be topped with granite capping. size of border 13m x1m grass on other side.
I have a small garden with a raised border. I have a few plants in the border which do not need tending too much: conifers, rosemary and a couple of others but there is a large gap in the border which needs filling up. Have you any suggestions on what plants would fill this gap, colourfull and don't need that much attention.
Please suggest colourful shrubs ( for all year round) that are suitable for a bed in partial shade, also can I put small bedding stones on this bed to stop the weeds comming up , even if I have delicate bulbs such as blue bells planted below.
We have a brand new garden and have an area approx 6mx6m that I want with plants/shrubs of some kind in.I want Zero Maintenance if possible but want it to have some colour and look nice, I was going to put a weed block down with bark on top in between the plants. I live in Mayo so we have a lot of rain, and I'm on an elevated site so it can get very windy, the soil has a lot of clay in it.I would be extremely grateful for some ideas of what to plant.
I have some pylons within view of my house. Now that the leaves are falling off the trees they look closer than they are. How do I cover these up? What are the best trees/other to make the garden look lovely & draw the eye away from these? What's the best way to plant them & where's best to buy them?
Just wondering what would be best to plant on bank (see attached photo). Bank is along busy road. Would like something relatively maintenance free and perhaps some colour. Roadside faces north. Soil quality would be average. Many thanks.
I want to plant a few pot flowers on my balcony. Can you please recommend a few perennial and annual flowers / plants with some colour that are relatively easy to take care of.
