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.
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.
After building an extension onto our house our front garden needs a complete redo. What would you suggest as low maintenance plants that look good all year around. We plan to put in a decent sized flower bed and a roll out lawn. We would need something that would screen a wall about 4.5 feet high at the back of the flowerbed and then various heights and colours. Also our backgarden is completely paved and would appreciate any suggestions as to what would look good all year round.Many thanks for your help.Marion Cusack
We have been working on a rockery in our garden and to prevent soil from drifting down onto the rockery from above we thought a line of evergreen shrubs would be ideal. Could you suggest a low growing shrub which doesn't need pruning for this area. It is a place that receives full sun. We would prefer something low growing because we don't want to block the view of the upper garden which is small. Marilyn and James
