I would really love some help - am a bit stuck! Over the summer I finally started sorting out the weedpatch that was my front garden. I have put a square of gravel in the middle (about 8' square) and planted a little box hedge all round that, with a curve round the lime tree in the corner. I now need to work out what to put in the remaining borders. It is north-east facing, but gets full sun all morning, then deep shade in the afternoons. The soil is neutral. The borders remaining around the box are about 20" wide.
I really wanted to plant things that were quite low, so they won't just swamp the box hedge which I was planning to keep about 8" or so tall. Also I really can't work out what to plant against the wall under the bay window. There isn't much space and I need something evergreen, that will grow quite close to the wall and (very important) hide the horrible crack that seems to be developing and I would rather not have to look at! So please, lovely people, tell me what I could do. Thank you, Amanda.
